Padre Island National Seashore, Texas – Day 2

The motorhome has been parked at Malaquite Beach on Padre Island National Seashore along the Gulf of Mexico about 25 miles from Corpus Christi, Texas for the last two nights. While there, even with our amplifier system, we were unable to pull an Internet signal. We departed this morning and expect to arrive at Rockport, Texas this afternoon.

In the below Google Earth image, X marks our parking location, CC locates Corpus Christi and PA identifies Port Aransas 30 miles north of Malaquite Beach where we went for a day trip yesterday…


Arriving at Port Aransas our first stop was the library to use their Internet signal to publish yesterday’s Blog entry. The librarian recommended Jay’s Seafood and Spaghetti Works for our lunch where Mary had Blackened Fish Tacos and I had the Blackened Shrimp Tacos…


Then to the ferry to see if our motorhome would fit. It would but because of real low tides right now we elected to double back through Corpus Christi before heading north for Rockport this morning…


Then to the small Port Aransas Museum…




Then to the Farley Boat Works which is part of the museum…


Here’s the museum’s website link…

Last stop of the day was at the Felder Art Gallery so Mary could get her art fix…

Enjoying beautiful island seaports is another joy of the full-time RVing lifestyle!!!

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

  1. I enjoy your posts very much. Where in Rockport will you stay? My wife and I just returned to Colorado from Rockport where we spent a month.
