Rockport not just for bird lovers | Waco today


If you love emerging and popular artwork, Rockport offers everything from simple to sophisticated.


Charming retail establishments are full of cute styles and chic gifts. The Dish House, which offers colorful everyday tableware at reasonable prices, caught my eye.

The lady at the counter is the mother of the owner, Carman Michael-Goodgion. Mom is a natural for retail sales.

Antique stores are spread all over the city. You can find everything from shabby chic, tired furniture, and rusty items to turn into splendid pieces for yard art or home decor.

My favorite purchase was a coffee mug with a photo of a cliff in Yosemite National Park for my climbing granddaughter. You never know what you will find.


Rockport festivals with themes occur regularly. Loved the tent fairs with everything imaginable the weekend we visited. You can attend the HummerBird celebration this month and return for the whooping crane tours which are available from November through March.

Each month brings fun and festivities. If you like to plan, contact the Rockport-Fulton Chamber of Commerce. He’ll send you a load of information. Every time you visit you will find something going on. Let’s see, do you want some fishing, hunting, seafood, artwork, clay pots, cute outfits, antiques or the HummerBird celebration in September?
