And the new "residents" will pee and moan about those big old sawgrass rattlers, the skeeters, the coyotes, bobcats, 'possums, skunks, coons, and all the other critters displaced by the "progress". I agree with Pilot, it's one big circle jerk that will raise taxes for current residents and won't do a damned thing for 'em.
I do not wish harm or destruction on anyone but it is well overdue for mother nature to reclaim her shorelines in this area. The property values and "appeal" will diminish with the aftermath of not if but when she decides to take it back. I do pray that this does not happen.
Talk about putting lipstick on a pig, wow! How many banks do you know of that are making loans for vacation second homes?
Seadrift's lack of 'quick' access to the gulf will help limit it's growth. Now for bay fishing, like pilot pointed out, it's one of the best spots around.
I dunno, Pilot, seems many are bypassing Port O'Connor these days and heading straight for Port Aransas. I mean, have you BEEN down there lately? Some of those homes can absolutely knock your socks off....not the quaint little beach I remember from teenage years. And, it seems, Port A has lost a lot of itself in the process. I sincerely hope that won't happen to Seadrift. I thoroughly enjoyed my last trip there. Quite the charming community, it is. :)
