We got up a little late on Sunday, so we headed over to South Padre Island to see about getting some time lapse of the epic clouds moving in. We missed out on our original location, so we headed to the Port Isabel lighthouse, a State Historical Site. On the way home, we stopped to catch a storm coming into Brownsville.
Port Isabel Lighthouse
We went to the lighthouse last fall, but it was a gloomy, cloudy day. Today’s weather was much better, especially with dramatic clouds.
On our way back home, we stopped by a parking area that had whooping cranes and pelicans flying around. We didn’t stay long, though. The previously white clouds were bearing down on us with rain, so we snapped a few photos and some video, then left.
