PREFACE This is a beautiful album of the scenic coastal towns of Rockport, Corpus Christi, Port Aransas and Houston before Hurricane Harvey. âLetâs go to the seashore!â And with those words, the mood brightens for everyone, for out there, lies the balm for so much that disturbs oneâs inner peace. Out there, on the wide-open sea, even on a choppy day, when the waves are raising a ruckus, lingers some sort of quiet not ordinarily found in day-to-day living. Everything changes at the seashore. The sights, the sounds, the smells all seem to blend into oneâs total experience, unbroken by the details that normally consume a person. There is a wholeness there, something infinite. Everything just seems right at the seashore. It is no wonder that people want to live there permanently. We learned from environmental scientists about climate change and global warming. We realize thatâs the reason we are seeing more tropical storms and protecting the environment is no longer a hypothetical consideration, but a real and present concern. September 3, 2017 has recently been proclaimed as a âNational Day of Prayerâ. The towns and cities, home to so many Texas residents and vacation destinations for people from around the world, together with the Louisiana shoreline, will be rebuilt. But it will be a different scene, perhaps acting as a reminder of the ephemeral nature of things. This collection captures fleeting moments in time. (Copyrighted Material)

Meet Marvin. He's a good kid. He means well, anyway, and that's something. Definitely out there trying to help people. Things don't always go his way...and then there's this whole magic thing going on. Useful, maybe, but all very confusing.
Besides, there's a girl involved. Did you expect him to handle that well?
Readers familiar with Shiver on the Sky, the author's first Owen Tremaine supernatural thriller, may recognize a setting or a character here and there. It's all in fun.
Much of the worldâs population lives within thirty miles of a coast, and beaches are perhaps the most popular tourist destinations worldwide. The Gulf of Mexico is no exception: Millions of people make their homes nearby, and many of them spend considerable time at the beach, joined by millions more tourists and seasonal visitors.
In Beaches of the Gulf Coast, Richard A. Davis Jr., a veteran coastal geologist, explores the dynamics of beach formation, providing the reader with a basic understanding of the characteristics and behavior of the beach environment and what causes it to change. He compares natural beach environments with those that have experienced human intervention, and he profiles many of the common plants and animals that grow and live on and adjacent to the beach.
Following the coastline from the Florida Keys around the Gulf Coast to Varadero Beach in Cuba, Davis describes the major characteristics of beaches in each US state, with a final chapter on Mexico and Cuba. Focusing on public beaches, Davis emphasizes the special features of the beaches, indicating whether and how they are nourishedâeither naturally or artificiallyâand pointing out which beaches have problems and which ones are doing well.
Including photographs, satellite images, charts, and maps that reveal the natural processes of beach formation and erosion, Davis showcases the beauty of some of the Gulfâs âbestâ beaches, both popular and remote. Beaches of the Gulf Coast provides a broad range of basic knowledge for all who own beachfront property, who live near the beach, or who simply love the beach and want a better understanding of this special coastal environment.
