Corpus Christi certainly does its part for energy. Aside from the active ports, oil wells, and refineries, this is a side of this area that is very impressive. I was admiring these windmills from a distance, so I finally took a couple of side roads to get close. VERY impressive! They are much more quiet than I expected, just a muted woosh, woosh as the massive blades spin. There are wind turbines as far as I can see, all placed in the middle of farm fields and pastures. In some cases, the turbines are sharing field space with oil wells. Old meets new.
We are constantly running across new species of birds that we aren't used to and the sunsets are always gorgeous!
