Corpus Christi, TX | Living in an RV by the Beach


Taking the pups to the ocean has been high on my list for a long time, and we were able to do just that. Saying that they loved the beach would be an understatement.

Once Oakley figured out that the ocean isn’t good for drinking and that the waves weren’t going to crush her she loved the water! She loves any kind of body of water so this was no surprise. Sometimes I think she thought that the sand was snow because she would try to stick her head in it and eat it.

We all know Ella loves a good game of fetch (it’s what she lives for) but she LOVED playing fetch on the beach. The sand was soft so she could slide head first after the tennis ball no problem. When she got hot she would wallow in the mud just far enough from the water that the bigger waves couldn’t hit her. When we threw the ball into the ocean she would dive in, no hesitations, but she would hop back out as fast as she could. She’s not a very graceful swimmer.


We had a blast driving up and down the beach in the evenings and enjoying the gorgeous sunsets.


Lindsey, Gerrit, Oakley, and Ella

Genesis 1:20

Then God said, “Let the waters teem with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth in the open expanse of the heavens.”

  1. We lived on padre island next to corpus for a few months and loved it. It took us three attempts to drive the whole 60 miles of national seashore beach because we kept getting caught in the tide. But once we made it we found beautiful sea shells from storms that washed them up in the dunes. It’s amazing how you can drives for hours on a beach and not see anyone anywhere.


  2. We were in the next space in our Tiffin Allegro Bus in this video. Didn’t get the chance to visit but once. I couldn’t help but notice that here, your RV was connected directly to electricity and water. I hope by now, you’ve had time to re-think that; it only takes one water pressure spike or high/low voltage to do major damage to the RV. Most Rvers won’t leave home without a quality power conditioning device (not just a surge protector) and a water pressure regulator.
