Last night we arrived in Beaumont, Texas, we left there early this morning for Corpus Christi. We stopped in Houston to buy a new power cord for my Mac. We arrived around 8:00 PM this evening in Corpus Christi. The weather is beautiful and we are having a wonderful time.

Entering Houston. The sky was so hazy I turned some of these photos to black and whites.

This is a cool wooden toothpick holder. I bought four of them four- one for each car and one for our son, and one for the kitchen cupboard.

The top is a rubber cork.

The following pictures are of this smokehouse. They have inexpensive meals with a lot of food. Mark and I split one meal for lunch. The store also contains a small grocery and gift shop. It sells a lot of spices and a huge variety of jerkies.

This is the front of the store- it is advertising the three different stores inside.

For those of you who remember that my son crashed my 2008 Nissan- this Jeep is our replacement vehicle for it. The costs of repairs ended up being over $ 5,000, so we repaired it and traded it in for a brand new 4 - door removable hardtop 2008 Jeep Wrangler. Now that we are out of the cold and nasty state of New York we are able to take part of the top off and enjoy the breeze!

The next few photos are of a rest area we stopped at. I love the pavilions and the landscaping. It is a very quaint place to rest.
