Travel to Port Aransas, TX

On Monday, January 12th, we pulled up the jacks and secured all the stuff in preparation for our 3 hour drive from San Antonio to Port Aransas on the barrier island in the Gulf of Mexico by Corpus Christi. It was almost as hard to leave San Antonio as it was to leave home! The photos are going across the causeway from Corpus Christi to North Padre Island and Mustang Island. We had been here in February of 2006 and loved the laid back family atmosphere of Port A as the locals call it. This time we were staying at a different campground sight unseen. It is right in town so we can ride our bikes places and it is just two blocks to the beach. This campground has very nice people here and a very nice pool and hot tub but it brings new meaning to the phrase "Reach out and touch your neighbor." We'll put it on our list of "never again" campgrounds because it is too tight for our size rig! The campground sits on the bay (Laguna Madre) side of town. In fact, in these photos of Doug and Homer playing ball on the sand flats by our campground, the bay shore is just beyond where we are playing with Homer. He loves to play ball and Keep Away. Yesterday he played and played. When we came back to the motorhome, he laid down and we didn't hear from him for hours! Last night when I took these photos as the sun was going down, it was getting quite windy and chilly compared to the 70 degrees it was during the day.
