Leaving Corpus Christi

We left Corpus Christi around 0930 last Tuesday with only one minor mishap.  We for got to take our Paradise sign down and I put the slide in squashing the heck out of it!  Between the two of us we broke it up and removed it.....alas the sign didn't make it.....

We took Texas highway 35 almost the entire way to Dickinson with only a couple jogs.  We drove through the Fulton/Rockport area and northward through some pretty country.  Some farmland with crops already coming up.  We made one stop for lunch

We pulled into Galveston Bay RV Resort and Marina around 1430 and upon first glance we liked it!  They have three prices depending on site location and we chose the freshwater pond.  It runs $400 a month and we got a discount for being military.  They also charge for electric and we left a deposit.  In no time at all we were parked and set up and enjoying a cold beer overlooking the pond and enjoying the breeze coming in off the bay

We ended up going out for dinner and headed to Kemah Boardwalk.  An amusement park with shops and restaurants.  We each got a pizza and a drink and sat outside overlooking the water feature and the folks dashing through the shooting water.

Back home we had to hurry to catch this view of the sunset from the pool area.

Wednesday morning we were both up in time to enjoy the sunrise.  This view is from our patio

It's very quiet here and we have ducks with chicks, a snowy egret and Quaker Parakeets.  More pictures will be forthcoming!
