NAS Corpus Christi, Texas
Temps: LO 80F (27C) / Hi 92F (33C) … Feels like 105F (41C)
Yes, we’re back. In fact, not only are we back in the US, but in the past four days, we flew from DC to Houston … got the Phaeton serviced while there … stayed two nights in the area so Mui could get his Costco fix … and drove 232 miles (371 km) to Corpus Christi today. We will be staying at the Shields Campground aboard Naval Air Station Corpus Christi until renters vacate our Gulf Waters site at the end of the month.
That we had a terrific vacation goes without saying. Those of you who might have taken a peek at our Two to Travel blog already know how we spent the past month and a half. For the rest of you — a summary ... we visited family in Turkey; explored Helsinki, Finland; made a day trip to Tallinn, Estonia; and — drum roll, please — attained the North Pole aboard a Russian nuclear icebreaker!
As you can imagine, we’re exhausted — pleasantly so. But before the R&R begins — and I get back to blogging — there are chores that require our attention. And so, we begin to ‘live life’ again ;-)
