Patricia, you should love it.  It will be totally different, since it  is 
zone 9b....but coastal gardening is wonderful. Not much different than here  
in Houston, same zone.  The upside is that you will be able to grow many  
plants outside that are considered "house" plants in the northern States.   
Many tropical fruits, great Citrus and Palm growing part of the country.   
There is a terrific Palm society down that way that is really nice.    The 
downside is that you won't be able to grow the cool weather plants like  
Peonies, and other cold zone plants.  As many that move down here from the  
north....you only miss it for a short time, then you realize all the things you  
can grow that you could not before.   You will definitely not be sorry  as a 
gardener, I can assure you of that.  It will be a bit of an  adjustment, but 
over all, you will be happy.    You'll love the  weather too!   Think 
sub-tropical.  Sure it's Hurricane area, but  the Texas coast is spared more than 
the mid west is from Tornados and snow  storms.  Won't have to ever worry 
about a snow storm again....if we get a  little we are all out celebrating.  
Be prepared to live more outside than  inside.  Corpus is a very pretty city, 
and very close to other cities like  San Antonio, which is tons of fun 
too...with lots to see and do.

We  lived around Pt Arthur (Nederland), Tx 20+ years ago but Corpus sounds 
so much  drier. Now in OK.
It could be a great opportunity (especially at 56) for my  husband! I will 
have to start over.
Our children are grown, one in Arkansas  married with children and the last 
one graduates from college soon.
Any  information and advice is appreciated!
