I was always told that Corpus Christi, Texas was much nicer and cleaner than Galveston. That proved to be false. It wasn’t bad, but Galveston felt about the same and with a better ocean view.
Julie planned a birthday trip for us from Manhattan to Miami, then rent a convertible and drive to Key West. The plane was delayed so the drive in the convertible, although still fun, was made a bit less by the fact that we drove from 10:30pm to 2am, so not much to be seen on the drive in. Still, what a nice birthday surprise!!!
