Towers Fall and Creole Rocks

 Click for South Padre Island, Texas Forecast

We made a whirlwind trip over to South Padre Island to check out some properties.

In 2006, construction on a beautiful, 31 story condominium tower began at the northern end of the developed area of South Padre Island.


Unfortunately, the structure took on a nickname of “The Leaning Tower of Padre” as one side began to sink into the sand.  In December, 2009, the building was imploded.  This is all that is left…….


While on the island, we stopped for lunch at  Daddy’s Seafood and Creole Kitchen, 3409 Padre Blvd., and were not disappointed.


I know that you’re supposed to eat seafood at the beach, but Rick had a ribeye with a Cajun seafood cheese sauce on top.  It was outstanding.  Tinka stayed with the seafood fare and enjoyed a sampling of various shrimp dishes.

There are a number of good restaurants on the island.  This is one of the best.
