Lunch on Corpus Christi Bay

Day before yesterday we went for lunch on Corpus Christi Bay. We had some delicious fresh seafood. Afterward, we walked along the park at the Marina. Naturally there is lots of waterfowl. I had to catch this picture of the gull before Doug got Homer out of the car because as soon as Homer got out all the gulls took off.

There were two Pelicans who kept flying and then diving into the water and they would surface with their catch and swallow it floating on the water. Then repeat the whole process all over again.

The ocean tanker is an interesting story. When we crossed the ferry out at Port Aransas, our ferry had to manuever around this tanker which was just coming in the shipping channel. While we drove around the bay and ate lunch, it crossed the bay and waited for its tug escort to go up the shipping channel. This photo shows it under way again heading for the shipping channel. All the ports have shipping channels - long finger-like channels which allow the port to have more docks. The Brownsville, TX shipping channel down at the tip of Texas is 25 miles long stretching inland. See the next entry for some aerial photos showing what I mean.
