Victoria is one of those small cities that has not been spoiled by urban sprawl. My mother was born in Victoria in 1910 and moved shortly thereafter. I have always wanted to visit her birthplace, but for some unknown reason it has eluded me. I don't know if it is because I have no relatives here; I don't know the physical location of where my mother was born. She was the oldest of twelve children and they all pretty much settled in Corpus Christi. I have friends from Victoria and just a couple of days ago found out that an old friend who attended the same junior high school as me lives here. I see Victoria as the place that I am setting my sights on and give it a high priority to visit and spend a couple of days here to daydream and attempt to imagine what my mom would have thought about Victoria had her parents decided to stay and settle in this area.
