Still driving home from visiting with my niece in Corpus Christi, Texas and my 3 hour drive is now approaching an 8 hour drive instead, due to my many pit stops! This was the last one though.
In my post about Rockport Beach, I mentioned how I changed in the truck into my swimsuit to enjoy the beach and got my hair wet, etc. Then I thought to myself, hey..drive home with your swimsuit and a coverup on and it will be a nice, cool ride home 🙂 on this hot, Texas day! Well, not so much… as once I left the beach, I started to just feel gross! Lucky for me my beautiful daughter and her hubby had bought me a Texas State Park Pass as a gift! (Great gift by the way!!!). Why am I rambling about it? Well, I saw yet another sign…this time for Goose Island State Park!!! Well, I’ve never been there before…(swerve)…AND bonus for me…I can shower off and change there and feel like a human again! 🙂 Winner, winner – chicken dinner 🙂 !!!
The Big Tree at Goose Island State Park was named the State Champion Coastal Live Oak (Quercus virginiana) in 1966. It was dethroned in 2003 by the San Bernard Oak on the San Bernard National Wildlife Refuge. The Big Tree is still one of the largest live oak trees in Texas and in the nation.

If I didn’t have to go back to work, I sooooo would have stayed here!!! But like Arnold… “I’ll be back!!”
Thanks for stopping by!
