Miller Grove News 09/16/14 By Brandon Darrow

Community news is scant this week. As I wrack my brain as to what has been happening lately I can only focus on the weather and how nice the norther and rain has been this past week.

MOSQUITOES AND BALLYHOO, 09/18, 2014 #1350

More on the eight day Galveston fishing trip. Saturday, September 6. Day 3. Our camp was southwest of Galveston at Jamaica Beach. Today we traveled back to Roll Over Pass to fish with our group.

These large sea birds are related to albatrosses...
