SANDIES CREEK (Lavaca County). Sandies Creek rises five miles southwest of Sublime in south central Lavaca County (at 29°24' N, 96°50' W) and flows southeast for 14½ miles to its mouth on the Navidad River, in Seclusion (at 29°18' N, 96°14' W). The sandy loam of the area contributes washed sand found in high quantities in the streambed. Laughlins Sandy Creek, Sandies Creek's main tributary, also dumps sand and water into the creek. Most of the area is densely wooded with oak, pecan, sycamore, and elm with an understory of yaupon and grape. It is used as an unimproved range for cattle and as a wildlife habitat.
