Night Light: Port Isabel Lighthouse still shines
As inland-bound 19th-Century sailors began the home stretch through the waters of the Gulf of Mexico, a beacon of hope shined during even the harshest of Gulf storms: the 72-foot-high Port Isabel Lighthouse, whose stationary white light was visible from 16 miles out to sea.
But the view at the lighthouse isn’t only from the top. Most Fridays throughout the summer, the Lighthouse Es--tablishment Cinema series invites movie-lovers to sit beneath the stars and enjoy new releases and classic films projected on the base of the lighthouse.
