Big Tree  Feb 2007
Texas State Aquarium
  Sea Turtle
Hawksbill Turtle
 


  We had a wonderful day yesterday, we finally went to see what everyone was talking about, "The Big Tree" it is across the long bridge over on Goose island and in the Goose Island Park. If you click on the picture you will see the details of this 1000 year old tree.  And in the next picture you will see Mike behind the tree walking the dog.  This will give you insight as to how large this tree is.   One of the things that you need to look out for all around this area are the alligators. Haven't seen one but with these signs are always on the lookout.

USS Lexington Feb 2007

Waiting for ferry to Mustang Island
  Ferry crossing the shipping lane, ship carrying oil, we had to wait until it passed before proceeding   What we see from the ferry of Aransas Pass  
    
Our exit

Our Welcome to the Island
  

  Homes on the ocean 
These look expensive and each are on the water with their own boat docks

Impressive but I don't think I would want to be there when a storm hit, although this area has not been hit with a hurricane for a few years but then again it could happen.
 

  We stopped at Moby Dick's Restaurant on the Island for fresh fish and shrimp, the coconut shrimp was not anything like in Port Angeles, but I haven't found good food like Port Angeles anywhere yet including Mexican. You would thing being here in the Corpus Christi area and so close to Mexico that you would fine good Mexican food but not so, they call it Tex/MEX here and it really is an Mix

 

 


Rockport January 20,2007

Here we saw replicas of ship from the 1800's and stories of the lighthouses from around the area

crossing over the bridge
  This is the first thing we see while crossing the bridge,
the USS Lexington
 
Mike got excited as this is one thing he wants to visit

The Alamo San Antonio Texas January 12,2007
   

 
What a site, it is amazing how one can go back into history to see how our founding fathers helped build America
 

 

 


The grounds were so beautiful, words cannot express what I felt when first seeing the entrance to all that has been preserved. I will let the pictures speak for themselves.
