Where I stayed
Mark and Christine's awesome house
Today we are heading south to the gulf coast of Texas. We are going to visit Leslie's childhood friend Christine and her husband Mark who live in Corpus Christi. Mark and Christine like all of Leslie's friends are awesome. But before we met up with them we broke up the 3 hour drive from Houston with our first visit to "WhataBurger". WhataBurger is Texas' answer to inNout burger in California. We have seen these fast food outlets ever since we entered Texas,but today we finally got to sample the delights of this chain restaurant. Although i don't believe it to be better than my beloved InNOut i call it a close second.
We arrived at Mark and Christine's a little after 3 in the afternoon and after introducing ourselves to their two cats Sylas and Layla, they took us to see the Padre Island National Seashore. We wandered along the deserted beach while Leslie caught up with Christine and i quizzed Mark on what the hell the Alamo was all about (Mark is a History Professor so i was tapping a solid source, in prep for our next stop San Antonio).
We finished the evening with a meal in the Port Aransas and a beer at the local bar. I was knackered so we hit the sack early. Mark and Christine have a full day of activities planned for us tomorrow so i will need my strength.
