Sure miss this place many good memories my Dad and older brothers worked on building the STP nuclear plant then we moved but Matagorda sure was fun

I really don't understand why you can't have bottles on the beach. Oyster shells cut your feet, cans rust and cut your feet, you go to the beach to look for beach glass... I know, beach glass has gone through a rolling process in the waves to smooth the edges..... Have you ever tried to break a bottle on the sand.... All the beer commercials, cans & bottles, on the beach.... Anyway, great picture!!

No glass bottles allowed on the beach !

Lol this is priceless

Ticket her....anyone else would have been.

The one on the right is a dumbass.
