It’s hard to believe we’ve been here 3 weeks already and only have a week left. Now we’ve got to cram in the rest of our to-do list in the remaining time. We still haven’t really explored Corpus Christi yet. We’ve spent most of our time either on the beach or exploring the Island. And of course our many trips a week across the ferry.
The channel, which the ferries cross, is a major route into Corpus Christi harbor. We’ve witnessed many very large ships navigating their way through. In fact the other day, we were told we were watching the third largest ship in the world traverse the canal. I’m not sure about the third largest part, but it was big.
It was actually carrying an oil platform of some kind and was extremely tall. Once it docked, the platform was to be removed and another type of very large cargo placed on this submergible deck. We might have to drive over there and see what’s next for this immense structure.
It’s amazing how fast these ships travel as they go down the passage. Sure wouldn’t want to be a small boat in the way! It’s a very busy waterway and it’s fun to watch all of the
We both love it here but are extremely frustrated by the lousy Internet coverage. Even our own mifi isn’t working very well. When we called Verizon, they said we are located right between two cells and the coverage keeps bouncing between their tower and the shared tower on the other side of the island. If we want to get anything done without interruption, we either get up at the crack of dawn or go into town to the library nearer one of the towers. When the massive crowds were here for Spring Break, it was almost impossible to get anything done online.
As is quite common in RV Parks, the management says “oh we’re putting in a new system soon so this problem will go away…any day now.” Well, we’ve been here 3 weeks and haven’t seen any improvements. Hopefully our next location will be better from that perspective. From here we’re headed for Austin, so at least our own system should work better! One can only hope!
It’s about time for our afternoon stroll down the beach so more later.
