This is the Texas Tropical Trail - lots of palm trees

Flat country!

Entering Corpus Christi - lots of oil refineries

Downtown Corpus Christi

The USS Lexington

The bay at Corpus Christi

Still building offshore oil rigs at Ingleside

They were building the 1st house here when we left last year

We've arrived at our rv park in Rockport - feels like home

We even have a little view of the Intracoastal Waterway!

A closer view - looks like an offshore oil rig going out...



Shore birds

Walking around the neighborhood

This huge house was just being built when we were last here

We said goodbye to friends, coworkers & managers at VIP-La Feria RV Park & hit the road about 9:15 this morning. We were only going about 170 miles & it was a beautiful day - sunny & no wind (unusual in So. TX). We arrived at Palm Harbor RV Park in Rockport about 12:30. Great day's drive! And then we got an rv site with a little view of the Intracoastal Waterway!

After we got set up, up took Callie for a walk - first to the seawall to check out the waterway & then around the neighborhood. This rv park is next to a housing area that is built around man-made canals so they have boat docks in their backyards. When we were here last year, someone was building a 3-story house on one of the canals so we had to see how it turned out. We thought it was going to look out of place but it doesn't. The houses are all so different that it fits right in.

We're parked right next to Mary Hansen, one of our friends from our previous visits. She invited us over for happy hour with some other friends who will be pulling out tomorrow. We were glad to get to see them again before they left.

We'll be here for several days so ... more later.
