I didn't realize how beautiful Corpus was! I love how you seem to capture the essence of every place you photograph. You need to come up to Lubbock because I just can't do it justice!

And you picked the best possible side streets in Corpus for picture taking, and none better than Ocean and Shoreline. Absolute brilliance.

Thanks, now I dont have to take pics and post them on here as I promised I would months ago. You captured what brought us to CC from Minnesota a little over a year ago for our retirement home.

Great photography RGV, but how does the old saying go, "you can put lipstick on a pig and take it to town but it is still a pig" lol
I grew up in CC and it will always be home to me but I am so glad I left there 10 years ago.

To the young poster who wants to be a doctor, there is nothing wrong with dreaming big. I wish you the best of luck with your goals, but go elsewhere to practice your profession. There are too many lowlifes in CC that are looking to win the "Lawsuit Lottery" = insurance is expensive.

People tend to badmouth the Texas coastline, but I don't think it's bad at all.
And I'll probably get flamed for this, but I don't think Corpus is any more impressive than places like Galveston. I thought the water was only slightly better. And actually, I think Galveston has a lot more interesting and historic architecture than most places in Texas.

Being an avid fisherman at one point I loved and still love the coast, especially the coastal bend. I just the "mentality" of the town. And you are correct, Corpus/PA beaches are just slightly better than Galvetraz, simply because they are a tad further from the mighty Mississip.

If CC is lipstick on a pick than Houston is just a "pig". Not only is it the fattest city in America but it also has not natural beauty whatsoever. It's the poorest exuse for a large city I've ever seen. It amazes me that it's the 4th largest in the country and doesn't event begin to compare to NY, Chicago and LA. It's nowhere near being in that same category. If you ask me, Corpus Christi is way underappreciated...and that's fine with me, because those of us that get it and understand that life is more than having a Starbucks on every corner will enjoy what a great city Corpus Christi without all the negative, people who think they're "too cool for school" because they can move to a bigger (not better) city.
