Our last two days in Corpus Christi were windy so we really didn’t do too much. The time was mostly spent catching up on computer stuff, hanging out by the pool and preparing for our stay at Port Aransas.
This morning, we set out on the very short drive to Mustang Island and the Pioneer RV Park near Port Aransas. Between the highway construction and wind, getting onto the island turned into a test of driving skill. Once on the island, the winds abated somewhat and the drive turned uneventful.
Pioneer is a very well maintained campground a short walk from the warm waters of the Gulf. After setting up, we took advantage of the sunny weather and spent most of the day on the beach. The sand is about the consistency of powdered sugar. No wonder one of the local areas is called Flour Bluff. The beach stretches on for miles and is mostly uninhabited. Now we know what the beaches of Southern California must have looked like in the 1920s. I think we’ll like our stay here and look forward to exploring over the next few days.
