Excursion to Corpus Christi

A short drive, and we were under the bridge and on the beach. We had lunch at Blackbeard's. Since I always have the gumbo, BBBH decided to order it, too. She didn't care for it, so I relished mine and finished hers!

Kent was all excited about the prospect of the tour of the USS Lexington. Since Beautiful and I have done that, we chose instead to go to the Texas State Aquarium while the son toured the ship. Now we have been to the aquarium on two other occasions, but I preferred not to bang my head on the bulkheads, and BBBH did not want the climb up the narrow stairways. Besides, the aquarium is endless entertainment. Well, not quite endless. We were exhausted after three hours or so, but Kent needed "just a bit longer" to finish his excursion.

Here are a few of the pictures Kent took. He is looking forward to showing his collection to his son, Alex.

We haven't been to the Lex in a few years, but we go yearly to the aquarium, and love it, and also enjoy eating at Blackbeard's. You all had a good outing and great pics!

Never even been close to this place, but it looks very large...

Shelly, we had a great time. Have to make at least one visit to the area every Spring.

Pearl, busy place, lots of activity.

Grace, leaves more for me.

Shark, that they are.
