Last week it rained for days in Houston. We’d planned a vacation for months and were very disappointed at the idea we wouldn’t be able to enjoy the beach! Turns out the weather cooperated. We had a great day playing on the beach Saturday but found out Barkley does NOT like the ocean!! He had a good time digging in the sand though. We had lots of time to spend with family playing games, talking, and of course EATING! I recommend the area for anyone looking for a simple vacation spot; especially if you are in Houston. Surfside Beach, TX is less than 1.5 hours from town.
