South Padre Island Snapshots

This picture, taken at the South Padre Island Convention Center, is one of my favorites because of the lines and angles involved.

In this one, I wanted to relate how large the wall is when you are there. It dwarfs you.

This is the upper deck at Louie’s Backyard; from there, you can see the expanse of the Laguna Madre (bay) or all the people dancing down below.

Sometimes, the bay was so placid, you could actually see the reflections of the buildings in the water.

The angles and lines on this building in Brownsville, caught my eye.

These are our new underwater fishing lights at Gladiator II. These will provide for many a fun fishing trip at night. The second set of lights is being installed now. They shoot 70 feet into the water’s depths.

I loved these moments. Every time the bucket fills up, it dumps its contents on the waiting recipients.

This walkway led from Schlitterbahn (waterpark) to the beach.

The angles of the roof remind me of the Sydney Opera House in Australia.
