Shopping in Corpus Christi

This morning was cloudy but we had sunrays just after sunrise. It was 51F (11C) when I left the RV around 7:15 a.m. but it wasn't windy. I took quite a few photos of the sunrays and the sun peeking out from the clouds.

This cute little fish had washed up on the beach

Gordon decided he didn't want to go to Corpus Christi today so after breakfast I got ready and drove myself. I'm not a big fan of driving over bridges in the truck (in a car doesn't bother me) but I'm doing much better. When I got to my first stop I called Gordon to let him know I had arrived ok.

The malls in Corpus aren't much. The Sears mall is nearly empty with most of the stores closed. Steinmart is open and maybe 3 or 4 other small stores. Other than that, it's deserted. The mall with JC Penney and Dillards is in better shape and is under renovation but I didn't find anything there. They have a really poor food court so I didn't even have any lunch. Apparently the food court is one part that they're updating.

I didn't buy much but did get myself a new pair of Nikes. They were on sale at Kohls so hopefully they will do me for a year.

I also stopped at HEB and picked up a few groceries as our next stop is Goliad, TX and there are no grocery stores there so I'll have to go into Victoria for groceries and laundry facilities.

When I got home around 3 p.m. I sat outside and read for a bit as it had reached 70F (21C) so was quite nice out with little wind. And time for a little nap before dinner.....
