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.

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.

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.

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

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