Flour Bluff is a particular area of Corpus Christi, Texas located on the Encinal Peninsula, bordered by Corpus Christi Bay on the north, Oso Bay on the west, the Laguna Madre on the east, and the King Ranch to the south. Waldron Field, located on the south side of Flour Bluff, was built during World War II and since then has been used as a Navy landing airfield. One can commonly see the orange and white training planes flying around the area.
Of historical interest: President George H. W. Bush was relocated at the Navy base for training classes in 1942. Senator John McCain crashed a training airplane there in 1965.
According to the Historical Marker located on SH 358 eastbound, near Laguna Shores Road, just west of the JFK Memorial causeway. In the spring of 1838, France blockaded the coast of Mexico during the Pastry War, so-called because of the alleged mistreatment of French citizens, including pastry chefs, living in Mexico. The strategic location of Corpus Christi Bay led to the revival of smuggling in this area. Supplies were carried overland across the Rio Grande, and the illicit trade flourished as Mexico bought sorely needed goods in Texas. Although president Sam Houston did not wish to antagonize Mexico, Mexican patrols at Corpus Christi offended many Texans. In July 1838, authorities at Texana, Texas heard reports of Mexican activity near the bay. A captured Mexican sea captain said that his government had declared Corpus Christi a port of entry and had dispatched about 400 men to protect it. A summons was issued, calling Texans to rally at Texana, August 7, to drive the invaders from the Republic’s boundaries. By the time the volunteers reached the area, some of the Mexicans had landed their supplies near the tip of Corpus Christi Bay and returned to Matamoros. The rest scattered, leaving about 100 barrels of flour and parts of a steam engine. The Texans confiscated the usable flour, and other contraband, and the site became known as Flour Bluff.

The Black Diamond Oyster Bar is one of the Bluff’s best restaurants, locals would all agree. The Black Diamond Oyster Bar is a 50 year long, Corpus Christi born, family tradition that’s currently four generations in the making. That tradition is, of course, for fresh, local oysters, and southern seafood done right. Since 1968 the diamond has had several locations, but has always been Pollard owned, and always maintained the same sort of atmosphere; an off-the-map hole in the wall, that serves up some of Corpus Christi’s best seafood and service. Then in 2016, Tom Starr built the most recent incarnation of the diamond in Flour Bluff, which resembles a friend’s house, more than anything. If the friend had a live stage in his backyard that showcased some of the local talents on the weekends, that is. Now with Tom, his wife Nicole, Derrell, and Rhonda Pollard, the four of them keep Doyle Pollard’s legacy alive.

In fact, white vein Kratom is comparable to a cup of coffee in the morning, according to some of our customers. This vein color helps with focusing throughout the day, and staying motivated and on task. Further, we have also heard reports of customers using this Kratom color as a pre-workout supplement.

Red vein Kratom is probably the most popular color. This strain is considered to have the most potent pain relieving properties of all the Kratom colors. Additionally, this color seems to be a favorite among customers kicking an opioid habit. Most red vein Kratom has high pain relief qualities, and, in higher doses, can have a sedative effect. For this reason, customers also use red vein Kratom to help them wind down for a peaceful night’s sleep.
Green vein Kratom is somewhere right in the middle of white and red. Its a great blend of pain relief, while giving you a sense of wellbeing and focus for your day. Customers report that green vein Kratom is wonderful for social activities. This is because it helps to keep you bright and cheery, while also relaxed and comfortable. And of course, doesn’t leave you feeling tired or groggy the next day.
Yellow Kratom produces effects similar to green Kratom. The yellow color is not actually a result of the Kratom vein color itself, but results from a unique process used to dry this type of Kratom. Yellow Kratom mimics green vein’s pain relief and mood boosting properties, while also having a milder form of the energy boosting you might get from a white vein Kratom.
