The family and I spend a few days in Corpus Christi, Texas. We have never been there prior to this trip and we are already planning for next time. We stayed in a condo on the beach and enjoyed vacation our way: do nothing, plan little, above all: have fun. Of course, we did go exploring.
North Beach is beautiful and easy to navigate around to the aquarium, USS Lexington, various gift shops and restaurants, as well as the beaches. We had beach day on Saturday at Padre Island and took a deep sea fishing cruise Sunday evening from Port Aransas. And ate lots of fresh seafood. Every. Single. Night.
There are quite a few ghost stories about the North Beach area. A simple google search can generate a few that will lead you down various rabbit holes. We ate at Blackbeard’s, which is said to have a resident ghost, and the USS Lexington has a crew of them. I personally didn’t see any, but we had an odd experience at the restaurant with regards to my husbands phone. He had a mapping app open and it usually doesn’t move. Until he set it on the table and then the app acted as if someone was scrolling through the map showing various areas around the island we were on. Very odd. But harmless.

This Tuesday I am thankful for vacation, family, and having one more day before returning to the “real world” – aka: the office.
