The W estern or Texas d iam ond b ac k is native to m ost p arts of our state. The rattlers in Galveston are venom ous snakes and they call the dunes and flats home.

Sm all B ur Clover is an erec t, herb - lik e p lant and c an g row 6 to 22 inc hes hig h. I t has c reep ing stem s, w ith alternate c lover- lik e lea es and spikes of small yello pea-like flo ers. eaf stems are slightly hairy . The leaves are CL O V E R - L I K E w ith three inverted heart- shap ed leaflets. lo ering period in our region is ebruary to une. lo ers are born on short flo er stalks ith to small yello pea flo ers to inches long . ruits are coiled pods to inches in diameter. n a t inding a four- leaf c lover on St. P atric k ’ s D ay is sup p osed to b e g ood luc k . not er n a t O thers say that four- leaf c lovers g ranted the p ow er to see fairies on St. P atric k ’ s D ay . y o e ear Green on t atr s ay The reason g reen is the g o- to c olor of St. P ad d y ’ s c eleb rants c ertainly seem s ob vious. I t’ s an I rish holid ay ! hamrocks The rish flag eprechauns ut at the time of the holid ay ’ s b eg inning s, St. P atric k ’ s D ay w as a relig ious holid ay c eleb rated only in I reland — g reen w asn’ t even p art of the equation. O ne of the reasons g reen w as ad op ted w as b ec ause of I reland ’ s nic k nam e, The E m erald I sle. The green stripe in the rish flag also played a role. Traditionally, the green rep resents the Catholic s of I reland , the orang e rep resents the P rotestant p op ulation, and the w hite in the m id d le sy m b oliz es the p eac e b etw een the tw o relig ions.

A TRADITIONAL SEASIDE VILLAGE THAT’S TRANSFORMING THE TEXAS COAST High architectural standards and a strong design code signal a new level of quality on the Texas Coast. The expansion, Cinnamon Shore South, gives buyers the opportunity to join the prettiest, beachside village in the Lone Star State.

Mark Schnell Urban Designer

When I first ventured to Mustang Island, located on the Gulf of Mexico in South Texas, I found a place that’s straight out of a Robert Earl Keen song. The iconic Texas musician sings that “the road goes on forever, and the party never ends.” But Mustang Island offered a twist on his lyrics: the road literally ends at the ship channel (and a ferry) in the old town area of Port Aransas. Even though the road does not go on forever, the party in Port Aransas never ends: lively beach bars, a robust restaurant scene, some of the best fishing around, and a funky beach town


vibe that comes in part from a location at the very end of the road. But I didn’t find the kind of walkable mixed-use communities that so many people – including many Texans – have come to love along Florida’s Highway 30A, a place that I call home. I met Jeff Lamkin in 2006 after he had purchased 60 acres on Mustang Island. He loved Port Aransas, but also saw potential in the wide open spaces just outside of old town to create a new community for beach-loving Texans. I designed the master plan and wrote the design code to generate a

walkable mixed-use community unlike anything constructed on the Texas coast. With a strong emphasis on design, we set out to create a new place to complement the old. In the 15 years that followed, the original 60-acre tract has been largely builtout. Hundreds of additional acres were purchased, and new phases are now under construction, with even more in the planning stages. Cinnamon Shore has grown to become the community that transformed the Texas coast.

t’s been said that the rhythm section of any band is its heart and soul. Y et the drummer and bass player in most music groups frequently get the least amount of recognition. B ass player Paul Chapman was never a guy looking for the spotlight but has shared it with many of H ouston and Galveston’s finest country, a , trop-rock, and talents. long ith his amiable personality, musical ersatility has pro en to be one of hapman s greatest gifts.

Paul is a phenomenal musician. He has the trifecta as a musician; he’s talented, he’s responsible, and he gets along with everyone in the band,” former Funksion band-mate Fred Linton said.

Paul Chapman was born in Pascagoula, ississippi in , the son of nn urdy and musician, obert a id “ happye” hapman. n the mids the elder Chapman was a respected trombonist in attiesburg, ississippi, and played several shows with the Chappye’s Music Store, 1955 internationally known W oody H erman and. erman led a hugely popular, rammy-nominated s ing a band in the s and s and toured the and orld until the s. sked to go on tour ith erman, hapman declined because of family obligations and soon after opened a music store in Pascagoula to provide his young family ith more stability. t as in happye s usic tore at or years of age that aul began to learn to repair musical instruments, but it as atching his dad s band play sho s that fueled his early lo e for a .

I was my dad’s roadie. There were 6 of us and we would take turns helping the band set up. They were awesome musicians and I said, ‘I want to be like that!” Chapman said.

Paul’s a great bass player. Everything he does is very tasty. He doesn’t overplay,” Ware said.

Paul Chapman n the orld of music publishing, a single riter may get credit for a group’s recording but he or she rarely creates that music entirely alone unless it s someone like aul c artney or rince ho occasionally made albums and literally played every instrument and rote e ery part. istorically, the orld s most popular recorded music has come from the musical “masala” created by a group of people orking together in song. ortunately for hapman, his ersatile playing affords him many opportunities to express his passion for the bass in many different genres. n addition to a busy performance schedule, hapman still teaches at The usic actory. e also repairs musical instruments and amplifiers - ust like he did in his dad s store in the s and s. or ore n or at on a o t a l a an er or an es s lessons or nstr ent re a rs essa e a l at a e oo o a yes

oo notted r le oo s, it’s a mono rigging method that’s new to me. W e have all heard of and are possibly using the benefits of a Non-Slip Mono Loop K not as a connection to our jigs, lures, etc. It’s a knot which allows greater swim motion/ natural movement wherever it’s used. Another obvious use of this high-range-of-motion connection has been simply overlooked. Such was the case for me. I recently saw remarks by Mark Sosin about his use of a loop knot to attach circle hooks to a mono leader, which significantly improved his hookup ratio. On my last three offshore fishing trips, where red snapper was the primary target, using this non-slip mono knot connection on my Carolina rigs, I seemed to miss fewer hookups. W hile that’s a variable from trip to trip at times, bottom line is that the connection didn’t affect the end results...or did it in a positive way? A loop connection gives that added range of motion and natural free-moving appearance to your bait presentation when activated by current movement or a simple rod twitch. It’s certainly an active part of my offshore rigging as are another pair of loop-to-hook options with a similar effect. Seeing the Sosin comment jogged my memory a couple of days later about the “sliding hook on a loop” used in W est Coast yellowtail fishing and its similarity to the loop knot and circle hook connection. This single dropper loop rig has the mono passing through the hook eye before an 8 to 1 0 surgeon’s loop is tied. The end result is the long tag end is the top vertical leader section with a swivel tied on it to connect to the main line off the reel, the shorter bottom vertical leg has a sinker attachment loop. The hook has freedom of movement on the “bait leg”, giving an advantage like the loop knot.

58 Waves Magazine | March 2022


This same arrangement could also be used when making up a Carolina rig, slide your egg weight of choice onto the mono, slip the mono thru the hook’s eye and carefully tie a 1 2 to 1 8 ” long surgeon’s loop. The finished product will be a Carolina rig with a “sliding hook” on the loop. A more standard Carolina or fish finder rig would be 1 2-1 8 ” mono leader with a swivel on one end and a non-slip loop connection to your circle hook on the other end. Slip an egg weight on your main line, tie the main to the swivel and you are good to go. This is the Carolina rig I use for most mono situations. The egg weight variation I use is a Q uick-Change Slip Lead, which is available on line at:

www.americanbandit.com This great piece of fishing tackle’s benefits is many, from their plastic bushing that snaps on above the swivel or surgeon’s loop knot of a Carolina rig. The slip lead has a hole and slot in it that lets it be installed on the plastic bushing where the bushing’s “lock ears” hold the weight in place. These slip weights come in sizes from 2 to 1 6 ounces; all use the same bushing. Other advantages: no weight- bang against your rod while underway, not having to cut your line, remove the egg weight, install replacement and re-tie...fishing time saved with the quick change. B ack to the Non-Slip Mono Loop K not, it’s easy to tie and has near 1 0 0 percent of line test strength in holding power. H ow to tie this connection is covered in an assortment of knot books, but the easiest source to find is on the internet. Go to Google and search for “Q uick Change Mono Loop K not for a clear view of its tie-up. W hen tying up the knot, use 4 turns for 3 0 / 4 0 , 3 turns


recently. I do believe it’s a step in the right direction, which might be a key element in your personal best hookset...think about it! The more natural feel this connection can give at the bite might just make a wary adult of any species hold on for a nano-second longer, resulting in an otherwise missed hookup. This close to the same hook/ bait motion also applies to those two-sliding hook on a loop options previously mentioned. with 50 / 6 0 and 2 turns when using 8 0 / 1 0 0 lb. mono. The advantage of using this knot at a circle hook in particular is the hook’s increased range of motion, which gives better penetration as the bait and hook motion wobbles it into alignment with the fish’s jaw or upper lip-mouth area at the bite. This is because of reduced influence of the mono’s stiffness. Any mono, tied tight at hook’s eye, will somewhat restrict hook movement at the time of attempted alignment for a positive hookset.

Give loop knotted circle hooks a try in any of your circle hook and natural bait use applications, also the “sliding hook on a loop”. K eep your eyes and ears open for techniques to possibly improve your fishing success. I believe this Loop K notted Circle H ook connection will do just that... “There’s always another way’’...again!

Is this loop to circle hook connection a magical technique? Don’t know about that, since I’ve caught hundred offish over the last 52 years offshore without it until

“J oy And Freedom In Every B ox!” T his is how the owners of R

everie Skate Shop describe their passion for equipping their customers with everything that is roller skating. Samantha Cherryhomes and Liz J ohnson opened in 20 1 9 , pre-pandemic, at 23 28 Strand Street, Suite 26 0 , with an already realized dream of forming and supporting a community of like-minded skaters. “We started on Facebook and other social media with a call for meetups to roller skate on the island,” said Liz and S amantha. From that call out, over 6 0 0 people have met and skated the Seawall, downtown areas, through neighborhoods, on tennis courts, and at the J ohnny R omano skate park. The Galveston Skaters still meet up and constantly enjoy welcoming new members to come out and experience that feeling of “R everie”. B eing in a state of joy, imagining pleasant things and just a general feeling of happiness is what reverie is by definition and what the skate shop helps to bring as newcomers and veterans to skating look for their next pair of skates, safety equipment, or just visiting to find out how they can get involved in the skating community. W hen the pandemic hit, the newly opened skate shop sold out of everything in stock. This was the beginning of even more people getting outside to enjoy the sport. That’s exactly what they sell, sports equip-

Alia Benavides: How would you describe the art you create? Loida Wexler: I want my art to express joy, happiness, and positive vibes. I use vibrant colors and textures. I want the paintings to “breathe” life. I’m not into dull, dark art schemes - it does not fit my personality. I believe in enjoying life to the fullest and not being afraid to take chances. We only go round once, and I don’t want to have any regrets. No pale shades for me…sorry. AB: What inspires you to paint rock stars, how has music influenced your art?


LOIDA WEXLER By: Alia Benavides

LW: As a pianist, I truly “hear” the music and am amazed at how the musician crafts his sound artistry. There are some very profound rock artists that are truly unique in style. I usually zone out with my favorite music as I paint. I love being totally immersed in my creative ethereal world. I forget about the real world and laundry in the machine. AB: Which is your favorite rockstar that you have painted and why? LW: I love Freddie Mercury and John Lennon. These guys paid dearly being so different and profound. As children, they were so misunderstood, and they “stewed” in self-doubt until they found their success. I guess I identify with that. I just couldn’t find my place in the sun until I stopped trying and started celebrating me. Once I did “me” my world truly opened, and I was somebody unique and special. This brain of mine goes non-stop. I was happy it found an outlet.

AB: How do you decide when to use oils & when to use acrylic when starting a painting? Do you have a preference? LW: I trained in oils techniques but in my style of painting I needed several layers to build up richness (i.e., fur on animals). Oils took too long to dry so I had to switch to acrylics. It was my luck that acrylic paints improved and the richness in pigments became readily accessible. Plus, the ease in the cleanup. Water based paints are so much easier because I’m a messy painter. I prefer acrylics for the sheer ease of use. Clean up, layering, drying…it’s more practical. Under a deadline, I can complete pieces much faster.

AB: What do you enjoy doing when you are not painting? LW: Antiquing, that’s how my antique booth got started 7 years ago. Playing the piano, gardening, investments (I manage my own portfolio), travel, cooking, spending time with family and friends. AB: Are you currently working on any exciting new projects? LW: Yes, I’m slated to do 2 new murals at Sawyer Ice House. The weather has been too cold, so it’s delayed a bit. Bidding on other art projects there as well. I also have 2 commissioned wildlife paintings on the books. (Btw I have painted over 130 pet commissioned paintings in the Houston area). You can find her art locally at From the heart gallery & Affaire d’ Art located on Postoffice downtown Galveston. Website: www.loidawexlerart.com Email: Loida.wexler@gmail.com
