We visited Boca Chica last weekend (see previous posts) and had a wonderful time! We also walked to the neighboring resort, Gone Fishing, and met the owner. Since it’s right next door, it’s no surprise that there are wonderful views of the water. The resort itself is also very nice and looks like a fun place to stay.
The owner told us that he has been there about nine years, and he was one of the first people to build in the area. At that time the road was barely passable and the area hadn’t been developed at all. Since then he has seen a lot of improvements and new homes. Because of the economic downturn though, interest has waned because people don’t have the money to invest. As things improve, he expects interest to resume and property values to increase. It certainly is a beautiful area and I can see why people would like to come here.
This pretty much catches me up on things I wanted to post about Boca Chica at the moment. Since our weekend getaway, I’m not sure where the week has gone. We’ve been doing things with friends, running around town, getting some business handled, and now it’s time to get organized for our trip to the US. People were concerned that we wouldn’t have anything to do when we were retired, but that definitely is not a problem. The days continue to fly by!
