Last weekend, we took a little drive south and east to the Port Aransas/Corpus Christi area. I had been craving a beach trip for a while, and since at that point I hadn't just read an article about someone getting flesh eating bacteria from swimming in the Gulf of Mexico, it seemed like a swell way to spend a weekend. We left on Friday night after work which meant hitting a bit of traffic and just barely making it to the Dairy Queen before it closed (apparently freeway exit Dairy Queens that are the only thing to eat for miles close at 8 pm on weeknights), but otherwise it was an uneventful, and actually rather scenic drive.
