If you are interested in reading about Flour Bluff’s rich history, please visit https://texasshorelinenews.com/. Each edition has a little piece of the past specifically related to the people and events of Flour Bluff (Encinal Peninsula). (To date, there are 32 issues.) I am the editor of both publications, The Paper Trail News and Texas Shoreline News. I encourage the readers to contact me to correct or add to the stories. The goal is to make sure these stories are in print and on the internet so that they are not lost to the ages. A print copy of each edition is on file at the La Retama Central Library. Send any information regarding Flour Bluff history to firstname.lastname@example.org . This is a labor of love that I am performing for “those who came before us and made us so strong,” and I need the help of all those who have information and pictures.
