Corpus Christi

As we were leaving Malaquite Beach, we met the volunteer host couple. They live at certain parks in their RV for months at a time, and recently returned from a stint at Bryce Canyon. This is definitely something we want to look into when we retire.

We heard great things about the restaurants and shops at Water Street Market, so we assumed it would be something bigger than this sign. It wasn't. Oh well.

Selena's spirit is still thriving in Corpus Christi. We only visited the memorial, "Rua de la Flor," but next time we may need to stop in at the Selena museum, the Selena gravesite, and stroll down the Selena Walk dedicated to her memory.

The Texas State Asian Cultures Museum was interesting and is one of five in the United States. The artifacts were a personal collection prior to being donated. Once you have looked at everything, you can try on hats, use chopsticks, and make paper cranes. Patrick is trying to blend in by squinting his eyes, but it isn't terribly convincing.

Next post...the U.S.S. Lexington. Stay tuned!
