Sylvan Beach Festival 2015

Posted on May 6, 2015

I’ve been hearing stories about Sylvan Beach Festival since I started working in Pasadena in January 2014, and when the banners went up around La Porte in the early spring, I was pretty excited!  The town sent out pamphlets with information about who would be performing on the stage, the town’s tiny monthly newspaper rejoiced, […]

Tiny May be the Next Big Thing: Sylvan Beach, La Porte… Again!

Posted on March 29, 2015

The weather here on the Texas gulf coast has been absolutely stellar lately, and I am pleased as punch to have a beach easy walking distance from my home.  Not unnaturally, one of the best parts about having a beach right next door is sharing that beach with my friends and family.  Now, I realize […]

Walking With the Winter Waves at Sylvan Beach

Posted on December 31, 2014

Sylvan Beach in La Porte, TX, always a treat in the warmer months, can be equally awesome in the winter.  The waves crash with a little more violence and froth, the seashells are as abundant as ever, the clean public restrooms are still open, and the birds are a heck of a lot bolder than […]

Sylvan Beach Park ~OR~ Who would go to the beach to use the internet!?

Posted on February 12, 2014

Last month, when my mom and dad were visiting for my nephew’s birthday, I managed to reach whole new echelons of busy.  I’m not going to go into detail here, but suffice it to say that I have four jobs, and they’re all over the very large Houston metropolitan area.  Happily, one day during my […]

Posted on August 17, 2012

Today’s Featured Writer: Cindy Sobieski People living in western Pennsylvania have a lovely way to cool off in the summer at the Keystone Lake Beach near Pittsburgh, PA.  Keystone Lake is a man-made lake dredged by horses in the early 1900’s.

Beachless in Pittsburgh: The Water Steps

Posted on May 31, 2013

Pittsburgh’s convenient TPlus light rail service stops very near the Water Steps at Riverfront Park on the city’s North Shore. That little gem of knowledge clinched my decision to tote a 6 & a 4 year old to the Northside last week for a break from the ennui of our Downtown hotel. The “Water Steps” […]

S.H.A.R.K. in the Sky!

Posted on September 23, 2016

It isn’t really noticeable here in the Houston area yet, but it is officially autumn!  Can you believe it?  Summer just flew by.  One way or another, we’re past peak beach season, which never really made much sense to me.  In the autumn and winter months, I’m as likely to go to the beach as […]

Shell-plate-Frisbee

Posted on February 1, 2015

To quote my niece, Oona, from a previous post about Sylvan Beach, “What we are going to do is making crafts out of the shells, like necklaces, and like paper and shells art, and coloring the shells on the paper with the shells.”  She elaborated on this brilliant idea a few days later.  She insisted that […]
