I agree with you about Rockport. I really liked it. I wish I could go there instead of try for Corpus, but I have reasons for having to be in the city where I will work (vision problems). I didn't care for Aransas Pass or Ingleside at all.

I understand vision problems having cataract surgeries on both eyes. Another concern with commuting from Rockport is the proposed new bridge in CC. TDOT says it's a four year project.

In casual conversation people say "it's a 35 -45min. drive". That does not take into account the unexpected and inexplicable vargeries of weather/reality. Let's say the reality of someone who works at Spohn Hospital uptown who punches a time clock. You might be very late if you didn't leave an hour early when there is a " dense fog alert":

A wreck, depending on where it happens can mess up your day. If you happen to be on the mile long Nueces Bay Causeway it can be a long wait.

When it freezes, and it does, the Nueces Bay Causeway can be like bumper cars. The combination of poor tires, lack of skill and common sense on icy roads becomes very apparent.

I heard Fajitaville, a three level restaurant on North Beach, cost five million to build. Drove by there Easter but didn't stop. Read current reviews on Yelp: Fajitaville Grille - Tex-Mex - Corpus Christi, TX - Reviews - Photos - Yelp
Imo, it won't make it through a four year traffic diversion.

Your "move' quandaries reminds me of "Oh, the Places You'll Go!" by Dr. Seuss. It was the favorite bedtime read for a couple of children who stayed with us years ago. That and "The Little Prince". It seems like you're in "The Waiting Place" - That might not be bad, just wait and see what oil does. It was last year at this exact same time that WTC took a dive from it's peak, to less than half the price for the last six months. Things might be much better for a buyer this fall, depending on how things shake out.

"Simple it's not, I'm afraid you will find, for a mind maker-upper to make up his mind."

___Dr. Seuss

I read that children's story so many times I can quote it
