A common sight that's not so common in Aransas Pass anymore. I haven't been to the harbor much lately, not only because I just don't get out much these days but it's become depressing to me. Things are changing too quickly for me and I guess I'm just not ready for the change. The demise of a heritage is painful, especially for an old geezer like me. The behemoth is open for business, the old rusty roofed buildings at the shipyard have been demolished, many of the piers and docks have been torn down and the boats...well, there aren't many boats left. Maybe we'll see more when the next season kicks off but they're pretty sparse right now. I don't think there's even a net shop operating anymore...guess there's not much left for me down there...except for the birds and the ICW. PROGRESS...all depends on perspective, I suppose. Guess it's time for me to find a new hangout! This shot is from 2005...back in the day!
