Goose Island State Park – Rockport, Texas

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.

The Little Toyota Truck Saw A Sign That Said “Rockport Texas Beach”…And His Steering Wheel Suddenly Had A Mind Of His Own!(MUST Have Been The Truck’s Fault As I Was Already Late Getting Back Home :)

How do you turn a simple 3 hour car drive from Corpus Christi, Texas to Houston into a 8 hour trip?? Have me at the wheel!!! I see an interesting billboard, sign, etc. and off I go getting distracted….fun! (Swerve! Detour!)!

I didn’t ever make time for the beach while in Corpus, so a quick drive through of Rockport Beach surely wouldn’t affect my drive time tooooo much right?! (Well, let’s not mention the other stop at Harbor Point Park ..opps!…or the others…)

Rockport, Texas -Tule Hike And Bike Trail (am I ever going to get home?!)

Yep, this is my crazy, distracted brain in action….the task today, after wedding planning with my niece, was to drive the 3 hours to get back home…seems simple enough right?! Nope…I see anything that looks like it should be further investigated and bam…off I go…am I ever going to make it home?! Not the way I tend to veer off on my mini adventures! 🙂 

I drove past this cool little park and spun back around to check it out…  The 1.08 trail has 10 foot wide concrete paths that will take you through lots of beautiful Live Oak trees and of course you will see Tule Creek.
