Corpus Christi

Hey ya'll! As I mentioned yesterday, I've been in Corpus Christi the last few days! I visited my best friend from high school, Drew and our other best friend, Lauren, came for the weekend! Drew is a veterinarian in the US Army and is stationed at the Naval base in Corpus. We had a blast! We went to the beach and the Texas State Aquarium where we met Kai and Shadow, two pretty dolphins! Drew had an emergency with one of her military working dogs, so I got to see her in action. It is so cool to see your best friend rock it out as a doctor.

We road on the National Seashore, which is a beach that is a National Park, and where you can camp or drive on. Drew has a Jeep so we drove on that. The terrain was a bit bumpy but it was a lot of fun. We went to some of Drew's friends' house for a St. Patrick's Day celebration and ate cornbeef sandwiches. Very Irish. All in all, I didn't mess with Texas and had a fabulous time!
