Port Aransas, Mustang Island and Corpus Christi

Yesterday and today, we went to Port Aransas, Mustang Island, Padre Island and Corpus Christi. We definately will have to make return trip(s) there. The birds and other wildlife and varied and we also saw the largest wind farm we have ever seen. The houses on Mustang Island are built on stilts because they are below sea level and this is done to help during the flooding during hurricanes. To get to Port Aranas from the mainland, we traveled over bridges and then a ferry. The same when we drove from south of Mustand onto Padre Island and then to Corpus Christi. We found a little guy in a shell looking at a caterpillar. Not sure if it is a crab or what. The USS Lexington is pictured, a WWII Aircraft Carrier. We salute you, our Greatest Generation! Sunny loved romping around the nature areas. Mustang Island looks quite desolate but has beautiful beaches that we could even drive on (and Sunshine could romp on and meet many new friends, both two and four legged types). We even found some cacti in a wetlands. Thought they were supposed to be desert items! Still love skylines and this one is Corpus Christi from a low, wildlife infested island across a bay - Great!
