Okay, so last we left off, we were in San Antonio, on our way to Corpus Christi. We've never been there before - Tom pushed for it because he wanted some beach time. We stayed at the Radisson on the bay, right next to the USS Lexington and the Texas State Aquarium. The back steps of the hotel lead right down onto the sand - so perfect. Even though it was too cold to swim, it was still nice to walk along the water's edge.
The USS Lexington is a retired aircraft carrier that you can now tour. Tom was in heaven touring the engine room and the flight deck. I was more interested in things like the crew quarters and the different service areas - dentist, barber, mess hall, etc.
I felt a cold coming on our second to last day there, so the next morning we stayed at the hotel right until check out (I made Tom watch Pitch Perfect) and then we drove to a local park to read in the shade until it was time to check in for our flight home.
