ISLA BLANCA PARK in the 1960s!

This week’s Facebook post of the Past was this shot of Isla Blanca Park in the 1960s.

Facebook Question: Remember this? On South Padre Island, in Isla Blanca Park, in the 1960s!

Andy Sanchez: Yes I do. This where the family would set up the spread, so when we got back from swimming we ate.
