These flowers were growing in the sand dunes on the high side of the beach.

I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

I could be wrong, but I don't think it is either one. The petal don't look right.

Stems are hairy right? Leaves alternate or opposite? I can't tell.

That's not it. The leaves appear to be alternate. This is more of a ground cover.

My eyes are Blinking from looking through so many pictures. It looks like it would be in the Asteraceae family. Symphyotrichum, Lecucanthemum, etc. ... but I can't seem to find a match with both foliage and bloom.

I think you got it Lin. I found a pdf file online called
LIST OF DOMINANT AND COMMON
WETLAND, DUNE AND COASTAL PLANTS
OF THE WETLANDS CENTER PREMISES AND GALVESTON BAY
and Aphanostephus skirrhobasis is one of the first plants listed.

http://www.tamug.edu/seacamp/images/wetlands%20list%20-%20We...

The first few pictures I found, the leaves didn't match, but others did. I might have something to do with growing conditions.

My eyes went Blinking too, looking for it. SO glad this one is solved.
