Mar 4, 2016 - Whooping Cranes
We took another Whooping Crane boat tour, this one out of Fulton Texas and it was so much better than the one we took on the 26th. The boat had a shallow bottom. It could get into place the other boat couldn’t and we saw the Whooping Cranes closer. We got some pictures of them with “blue crab” in their beaks. I you are ever in the area while the Whooping Cranes are in the area we recommend “Whooping Crane Tours / Rockport Birding and Kayak Adventures ” located right on Fulton Harbor across the street from “The Inn at Fulton Harbor” motel.Jump to full entry
Mar 4, 2016 - Fulton Oyster Festival
We attended the 37th annual Fulton Oyster Festival. It is put on by the local Volunteer Fire Department and it is their only fund raiser. The vendors and music were good; however, the oysters (which we love) were over priced for the area and were not put on ice after being shucked. The male winner of the Oyster eating contest ate 261 oysters in 5 minutes that right in 5 minutes. The winner of the women’s contest has not been posted as yet.Jump to full entry

The George W. Fulton Mansion is located in Fulton on the Texas Gulf Coast, in the county of Aransas. It is one of the earliest Second Empire style buildings constructed in Texas and is one of the most important of the style in the Southwest United States still in existence.

Mar 26, 2014 - Oh Well!!
A bit windy yesterday so it was a good day to get ear infection number three checked out. No med centers open on this island so we visited Portland and got fixed up. Then to Moondog's on the water in Fulton for some seafood Tacos and back to Port Aransas for a couple of hours in the sun. The wind was blowing so there was no fishing, but just watching God's creation was most enjoyable. Raining hard this morning so not sure what's on our plate, but might just do nothing.Jump to full entry
Jan 20, 2013 - Day 188 - to Goose Island State Park, Texas
We continued south from Palicios to Fulton/ Rockport, Texas in search of whopping cranes. The whooping cranes that summer in Wood Buffalo National Park near Fort Chipewyan, winter here at Aranas Wildlife Refuge. This State Park is busy and almost fully booked for the weekend but because we arrived at 11:00 am we were able to get a site on the bay. These sites have concrete shelters that hold a picnic table, the water and power services and provide shade as we are out on the breakwater into Copano Bay. After a trip to town for lunch at...Jump to full entry
Mar 26, 2008 - The Texas Tropical Trail
After s short run of about 160 miles, we are parked for the next few days at Goose Island State Park. We were lucky when we got here to get one of the last few water front sites that were available. We are parked right out on a point that juts into Copano Bay. The weather is warm and windy, with wind gusts of 35mph, it is enough that some of the waves are overrunning the breakwater. Since we have been to this area a few times before, we will limit ourselves to going for seafood and a trip to the beach. If the wind dies down a bit, I will...Jump to full entry
Jan 25, 2007 - Movin' On to Fulton, TX and 'Muddy Acres'
Thursday, January 25, I was up at 8:30. I'm still feeling a little woozy but better than yesterday. Sunny and warm sounds like a good start to the day. After breakfast tacos we packed up without incident until we pulled out of Pleasant Grove. Neither of us saw a concrete truck barreling down the road at 50 mph. Bob had to jam on the brakes as we hung half way out of the driveway onto the road. We both have agreed many times that the most dangerous time in the RV process is when you first start out. You are usually watching the tires in the...Jump to full entry
