However we eventually reached Corpus Christi, managing to avoid the remnants of a coffee table strewn over the highway! The once useful item now had only 2 legs, though how long it managed to keep them is anyone's guess! The sun was out and we were looking forward to a cuppa after 300 miles or so. The city was bigger than I expected and as it came into view the chimneys and chemical plants didn't invite!
As we drew nearer the more we began to relax, sunshine and palm trees heralded the approach of the Gulf of Mexico.
Once over the intercoastal waters, we drove along the one road that runs the length of this 26 mile island, well sand spit really, which is at best only about ½ mile wide! Now settled in our campsite only yards from the beach, we are getting used to the warm temperatures - and the humidity! There are 500 hundred pads on this site, though it is set out really well and the facilities are great, we'll put down temporary roots here for Xmas beside the great many 'Winter Texans' who call this home for a while too.
Here's something... we met a couple here also from the UK who are doing the same as us, and when we swapped notes about driving and journeys etc etc it transpired that they had arrived shortly before us, having travelled the same route into Corpus Christi - when they passed that table it still had all four legs!
