  Title: Corpus Christi, Texas
  Description:
  This near vertical view of the south Texas coast shows the city of Corpus 
  Christi (28.0N, 97.0W) and Corpus Christi Bay.  Mustang Island and the Gulf 
  of Mexico are seen in the Southeast corner of the view.  The Nueces River 
  flows into the bay from the west.  The light toned squiggly lines in Corpus 
  Christi Bay are mud trails caused by shrimp boats dragging their nets along 
  the shallow bottom of the bay.
