Some people newly to the area might not be familiar with the "T" out on the Samoa Peninsula. It has been a favorite quick access place to the Samoa beach for decades. The past few years it has been pretty dilapidated. This last year it has been repaved and makes for a great easy way to walk to the ocean within yards of parking your car. It is also just a good place to park and check out the waves and surfers.
Just head south off of Highway 255 at the end of the bridge, and go past the pulp mill about 1/4 of a mile and turn right on Bay Street. (Left at Bay Street will take you to Finntown where boat repair was big years ago.)
[UPDATE 7 p.m.] Ongoing Search for Man Swept Away on Trinity River - Reportedly the boat was found without him about a mile downstream.
