In April of 2004, right along Highway 288 they erected a statue of Stephen F Austin. He is known as the Father of Texas. I drive by this statue everyday on my way to work. It's pretty cool to see this landmark everyday.
When I first came to Texas from the west coast, I wanted to see the beaches. Being a California girl, the beach was a big part of my life. We drove to Surfside Beach with much anticipation, and lo and behold, we came up to what looked like brown water! A far cry from the Pacific Ocean, the Gulf Coast is totally different. Nonetheless, this is now my beach. If you want to see and hear the waves (not big ones mind you), this is the place to go. I still enjoy the water and sun, it's just a little (or a lot) bit of a change.

There are not very many places to eat in West Columbia, but we now have a Baytown Seafood restaurant in town, They serve a variety of grilled and fried seafood, as well as steaks and po'boy sandwiches. Our local Chinese food restaurant closed down, so they are offering some Chinese dishes, I guess it's because the restaurant is owned by Orientals. Works for me, being oriental myself, I always take an order of shrimp fried rice home, YUM.
