An Afternoon in Paradise - Conclusion

After completing our tour of the Sealife Center, we walked around Lighthouse Square and enjoyed the late afternoon breeze off the Laguna Madre. A few more photos were in order about town before heading home to Brownsville.

The Port Isabel Lighthouse sits on the now state owned Historical Site situated on just under an acre on the north side of Highway 100 just before crossing the Queen Isabella Causeway to South Padre Island.

The State Historical Marker.

Out on the square, I was lucky enough to get this shot of a Brown Pelican as it soared overhead.

On the drive home, we stopped at the City Docks and found this fisherman cleaning his catch of the day.

Another angle as he begins filleting his catch.

An almost too bright reflection as the sun sets behind a thick cirrus shield. It was my last shot of a most unforgettable afternoon.

Thanks for another outstanding post! Your photos are great, as always. The caption under the 'last shot of the day' really sums up that afternoon. Since neither of us enjoys being 'in' the photographs I thinks it's important that we 'document' days in our lives that truly well as the sometimes ordinary days. This, of course, was an extraordinaray day!
