Beau Chenes is on our list to check out. Will also add Seabrook.

We've had a boat in Clear Lake since 1998, on and off. There are really very few destinations in Galveston Bay and we have been to most of them, more trips up and down the Houston Ship Channel than I care to remember. We want to have the boat somewhere where we can head out for 3-4 weeks at a time without having to do the ship channel and then the ICW. We think that once we are east of the Mississippi that opens up all of the Mississippi, Alabama and a big part of the FL west coast.

We covered that area twice while heading out cruising, once heading south to the VI and then again heading north to Maine, and we would like to explore it in more detail.

Galveston Bay is OK for sail boat, you can just go sail around but with a power boat you really need a destination.
