Port-abel Lighthouse

Well, that is the first thing my mind read on the back of the card.

Card #: US-1130099
From: tigger_2005
Origin: Texas, US
Caption: "Port Isabel Lighthouse South Padre Island, Texas--The Port Isabel Lighthouse was constructed in1852. Its light was extinguished in 1905 when the emergence of railroads decreased the amount of commercial shipping. Dedicated as a state park in 1952, this historic landmark became a popular tourist attraction."

Note: "Howdy from Texas! I hope you enjoy this card of a Texas sunset. I live about 6 hours from the coast, but we try to go in the summer. Blessed Be! Jessica"
