Corpus Christi - part 2
We could only visit dad in ICU for 1 hour, four times a day. That left ALOT of downtime. Sometimes we just went back to the hotel and slept or vegged out. Sometimes we decided to do something. One day, we went out to South Padre Island. It was Uncle Frank, Aunt Kathy, Tracy, Mike and I. Mike had already been out there, as he rambled around at night (he works third shift, so he had a different sleep clock then the rest of us)
We collected some shells for Mike's daughter and Tracy's daughter. We took some pictures. So some giant dead jellyfish. The car was able to drive onto the beach, which was very strange. The beach was nice, but very dirty. Spring break had been the week before, we wondered if they do a beach cleanup after spring break. The water was cold and it was extremely windy. On the way back, we had lunch at a Mexican restaurant. They had the biggest soda glasses I've ever seen! We did a bit of touristy shopping...It was a good day and then we went back to the hospital.
