  STS038-086-016 Corpus Christi Bay, Texas, U.S.A. November 1990
Roughly oval Corpus Christi Bay and Mustang Island, part of the sandy barrier islands that separate this bay from the Gulf of Mexico, are featured in this photograph. The dark lagoon paralleling the coastline south of Corpus Christi Bay is the northern extent of Laguna Madre; Aransas Bay lies inland north of Corpus Christi Bay (lower left corner). Corpus Christi Bay connects with the Gulf of Mexico via Aransas Pass, a dredged ship canal, the material from which created the islands along the northern edge of the bay. Lighter Nueces Bay is visible west of Corpus Christi Bay. Part of the Intracoastal Waterway can be traced through Aransas Bay, Corpus Christi Bay, and Laguna Madre. Apparent are some street patterns within Corpus Christi along the southwest coast of Corpus Christi Bay; a vegetated swath of live oaks that parallels the coast to the north; Live Oak Ridge, a ridge of stabilized sand dunes; and angular agricultural field patterns north and southwest of Corpus Christi.
