Rockport, Texas Day 1 (GA373)

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 5,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 23rd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Thunderbird RV Resort in Monroe, Washington. I’ll depart here June 25th.

 

Since my RVing life is changing (see above), I’m starting to re-visit previously visited places. So rather than constantly re-blogging past entries, I’ve decided to do something different.

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…

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

The motorhome is parked at the Eagles Club #2249. We expect to depart here later this morning.

 

 

Yesterday was a laundry, do repairs and odds and ends day. The cold windy weather we’ve been experiencing for the last several days is finally starting to break. We actually saw the sun for a while yesterday and the long-range forecast is for sun and moderate temperatures. At Last!

 

 

Since I knew I wouldn’t have any photos for today, I saved three photos of the USS Lexington that I took from Ocean Drive the day before yesterday. In these photos, I think she resembles her nickname…The Blue Ghost. She got that nickname because the Japanese referred to Lexington as a “ghost” ship for her tendency to reappear after reportedly being sunk. This, coupled with the ship’s dark blue camouflage scheme, led the crew to refer to her as “The Blue Ghost”.

I’m currently in my 23rd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Thunderbird RV Resort in Monroe, Washington. I’ll depart here June 26th.

 

Since my RVing life is changing (see above), I’m starting to re-visit previously visited places. So rather than constantly re-blogging past entries, I’ve decided to do something different.

The motorhome is parked at the Eagles Club #2249.

 

Yesterday we drove the Bronco the about seven miles to Corpus Christi’s #1 tourist attraction…the USS Lexington Museum On The Bay. The Lady Lex was the last operating World War II aircraft carrier.
