The Coastal Bend... that's what they call the neck of the woods we're in. It's where the gulf shore of Texas curves to the south.
And just off that bend -- and near the Mustang Island State Park where we are staying -- is the Corpus Christi Naval Air Station (NAS). Jim retired from the Navy Reserve, and I like to go to military commissaries -- so we checked it out today. The base has an RV park for active or retired military; we’re thinking of staying there on a future trip. We also bought groceries at the commissary, then came back to the rig and did chores. Plus we got in our walk on the beach.
