We have really enjoyed our time here in Rockport and at Majestic Oaks RV Resort. The folks here have been soo friendly and we've met several folks from WI. They have alot of get togethers and activities and we have played cards several times, won a few games of bingo and played CLR dice. Then there are the food events...biscuits and gravy with eggs on a Saturday morning, Mexican Monday dinner, ice cream socials, happy hours and many more.
We also attended a Wisconsin Winter Texans get together at a local restaurant. We thought maybe there would be a handful of people but there were around 200!! Admittedly, we brought the age of the group down a bit, but enjoyed meeting fellow cheeseheads! There was a great buffet lunch, door prizes which included fresh WI cheese curds and a 50/50 raffle. It was pretty fun to pull into the parking lot and see a sea of WI license plates!
We were lucky enough to get free tickets again from Vet Tix for a comedy show in Corpus Christi that turned out to be pretty funny! We can't say enough great things about Vet Tix and if you are or have served, you need to check them out!
We have spent time driving the different shorelines and one day we drove down to the Padre Island National Seashore. The road literally ends in the park. This is the largest undeveloped barrier island in the world with over 70 miles of seashore on the coast, dunes and prairies.
We took a walk on the beach, careful to side step the man-o-war. We then went over and checked out the Bird Island Basin campground within the park. It's primitive camping in a parking lot basically, but what makes this so cool is that it is right on the bay where windsurfers are always out catching the breeze and boy is it breezy!
We found a couple of other nice little waterfront parks in Rockport. There doesn't seem to be a lack of waterfront parks on the bay or gulf. Some even have beautiful sculptures.
And lots of waterfowl, migratory and locals...
We also spent a day in Corpus Christi at the USS Lexington Museum. This is a naval aircraft carrier that has a long, storied military history. The self-guided tour through the ship is very well done and we really enjoyed the IMAX show recounting RIMPAC, the world's largest international maritime warfare exercise. The deck of the Lexington even had several prior naval aircrafts, with one being actively restored. Rather than tell you about our day, here are some of the pictures
Well that pretty much wraps up our month in Rockport and also our last month on the coast. We move inland to Fredricksburg for the month of March.
