30-Sep-2000 -- A drive down the Texas coast on Galveston Island south from the City of Galveston on a beautiful day took me to the closest approach for the N29 W95 confluence. The actual confluence is several miles off shore so I guess we will have to count this as an attempt.

As you can see from the photos this is a popular spot for vacation homes on the beach. Because this is the farthest spot from the city of Galveston there is still some undeveloped land. Come and get yours while it lasts.

The San Louie Pass bridge connects the southern end of Galveston Island to the mainland of Texas. Hurricane Alicia passed directly over this spot when it came ashore in 1983 with winds over 100 miles per hour. It took over a year to clean up all the debris from that storm.
