We acutally had more visitors than just our granddaughters, Johanna and Lucy. Birgitta drove all the way to Corpus Christi from Farmington, MN. They came for about two weeks and we had lots of fun with them. We brought them to the local playground several times. And, of course, there were several trips to both the beachs on North Padre Island and the Port Aransas Beach on Mustang Island.

There were two special events. The first was a visit to the Corpus Chrisiti Aquarium. They had a blast, especially the water show. Then there was a day of horse-back riding. The girls had a wonderful time at Gait and Grace Ranch in Gregory.

Seth flew down a few days before they left to help with the three day ride back to Minnesota. All in all, it was a great two weeks with Birgitta and the grandkids.

The same morning that they left, my brother and his wife drove up from South Padre Island. They spent two nights with us before returning to Brownsville. It was a really nice visit.

When we came down, we were thinking about buying property. I realized that I am not ready to spend every winter in the same place. And if I ever get to that time, Corpus Christi might not be the place. Life is slow here and there is not a lot to do, unless you like fishing. With a boat and a condo or house on the island, that would be a very sweat deal for a boater or fisherman. There is a lot of really inexpensive properties for sale on North Padre Island.

This our last week in Corpus Christi. We will be head north where we can enjoy another style of living.
