One would think that, with our particular type of lifestyle, there would be little opportunity to get into the holiday spirit. Quite the contrary, because we are not busily decorating our home, purchasing gifts or baking cookies, we have more time to enjoy the sights and sounds of the season. Sunday afternoon we attended The Nutcracker by the Corpus Christi Ballet. After the concert we drove along Shoreline Blvd.( it runs along the bay in downtown Corpus Christi), which is decorated with a very large Christmas tree.
