One of the last in-town stretches of natural beach was recently cleared and flattened in preparation for the building of a two-tower condominium complex. I can't help but wonder what happened to all the little critters that used to call the vegetation home....

Time to Padre!

A foam wave spills like a waterfall into the dancing crowd of springbreakers at the Bahia Mar Resort on S. Padre Island, Tx. Put together Spring Breakers, Music, Alcohol and Foam and you've got a party!

Must Be Easter...

Now here's something you don't see real often - a traffic jam on Gulf Blvd. There are about a jillion people here right now - lots of cars, most sporting south of the border license plates. It's a pain if you get stuck in the traffic, but someone's gotta be hearing the happy jingle of cash registers... (wish it were me!)

Bye By Lizzie Bell

Gone but not forgotten - In the interests of pursuing higher education, our Liz (below, center) has left for San Antonio. Kelly's Irish Pub just won't be the same without her. See more pictures of this evening here.

A residental area on S. Padre lies in ruins at the north end of the island ....
