We did a little touring while here. We toured the USS Lexington, went to the Sand Fest on Mustang Island, and a few small things. Dave and John went fishing whenever the weather allowed it. The last full day on the base Dave met with a friend for a round of golf. The last five days here, the weather turned nice.

So here are a few photo's of things we did, enjoy.

A womens fly fishing club called "Sisters on the Fly" is very unique. We met one of the members, Rachel B. while at the Sand Fest. She had brought her little "Sister" trailer, they're known for the trailers they bring for the outings.

We're excited this time of year. You can tell by our itinerary, our summer trek is beginning with our leaving Corpus Christie. Yippee ! ! ! Winter is over, it's been unprecidented as far as the weather in south Texas goes. Yes, just like most everywhere, the weather has been cold, windy, stormy, rainy, etc, etc... So look out highways and byways, here we come, with vigor...
