Corpus Christi Adventures

After visiting San Antonio we drove down to Corpus Christi and stayed for a few days. The first day we didn't do much and were a tad lazy, though we did go to one of my favorite books stores and ended up bringing a suitcase full of books home with us.

One of the first days there we went to visit the USS Lexington, which we both enjoyed! 

 We saw this little sea turtle when we walked out on the pier!

 This was his first time at the beach. It was so fun.

We were able to see the last turtle release of the season one morning. Little sea turtles are so cute!

We also were able to visit the Aquarium which was way cool because my aunt's neighbor works there and we got to go behind the scenes! I don't have any pictures of this but it was neat to see how they do things behind those huge fish tanks. We go to look down into one of the tanks with the sharks swimming and fish and turtles. Also got to see baby stingrays, alligators, fish, seahorses, and sharks!

Eating good food was a top priority and we ate fresh shrimp, crab, and sushi!

We spent another day at the beach and ran through the water, but I didn't take my camera because I've ruined one camera at the beach before. 

Sorry there aren't more pictures but these give you the general idea.

Way to cool. Love the pictures and those white legs! Maybe someday I'll get to the ocean.
