We decided to check out this restaurant that is located under the JFK Bridge on South Padre Island Drive.
On the way there, we spotted this heron. You can see in the photo that it is raining, but this did not deter the beautiful water fowl we saw here in the Intracoastal Waterway.
The cloudy weather prevented us from seeing the sunset today (which is reported to be spectacular). But the pelicans and other water fowl we saw were still amazing.
Our food was mediocre (we had clam chowder, popcorn shrimp, fries and cocktails), but the ambiance and location was great. They offer very reasonably-priced lunch specials ($6.99) that would be worth a visit. It would be beautiful to see a sunset from here (and we may do that before we leave the area).
