The weather was kind of nasty. Cold. Overcast. Rainy. I didn't get to go fishing although one day I did go with my grandfather to pick up ghost shrimp for bait. That was "interesting".
The minute I arrived in Corpus I was whisked away for a cook out. Barely had time to say hello before heading off to see a bunch of people I don't know. Now for those who don't know me, I do not like to be around a lot of people I don't know. Takes me way out of my comfort zone. I was way outside of it!!!!! But my grandparents and my aunts and uncles were also there. It was funny when I saw my Uncle Joe for the first time, in YEARS, he tells me "Girl! You are WHITE!!" Definite emphasis on the white. LOL! I can't help it!!! The only thing I inherited from the mexican side was my dark curly hair, my big booty, and my love for the food!!!! I just laugh it off!
I got to spend a lot of quality time with my grandparents. It was nice especially since I didn't get to see that much of them back in May when I had gone home to visit! They have a nice one bedroom condo on one of the diversion canals. Here's a picture from their balcony:
We did go down to the sea wall on Saturday for a walk. I got to take pictures with my grandparents. Aren't they cute?
On Sunday, we went to downtown Corpus Christi. Went down to the harbor area. Saw the statue and memorial to Selena. For those not familiary with her, she was a tejano singer who was murdered by a fan at a very young age. She was from Corpus Christi and they STILL love her there. We even went by her gravesite. I know, totally touristy but interesting. Her gravestone is a portrait of her. Yep, I took pictures.
