we were on vacation in South Padre.it was just after the fourth of july.we were stayin at the LaQuinta hotel.it was me,my son,and son in law.we were lookin for crabs on the beach around 3:00am.it was july 6 2011,my wife and daughter were asleep in their rooms and we thought it would be a good time to get our flashlights and go huntin for crabs.we were not the only people out lookin.we met a man who was staying at the hotel next to us,he was a lawyer from fort worth,texas.he to was huntin crabs.any way we got to talkin bout where we were from and offered him a beer.we stayed talkin for a while,around 3:20am we noticed we were the only people still on the beach and we decided to pull up our chairs on the deck by the beach.we were talkin and i noticed a bright light farout on the ocean and i asked them did yall just see that bright light,then i noticed something come out off the water,we kept talkin,then i asked them is that a helicopter,or an airplane off in the distance,icouldnt tell,all of a sudden it got closer and we all agreed it was not a plane or helicopter,the top of the craft was blinkin white it hovered over the water,then slowly took off,then the top of the craft turned red,it took off and made a uturn back towards us,stopped in mid air and lights flashed across its front,yellow,red blue,green.several times.we just looked at each other and again i asked them are yall seeing what im seeing.and we all agreed that what we were looking at was not anything that we have ever seen.it did this fir approx.20 to 30 min.everytime it would stop over the water it flashed colors across the front in front of us, we said to each other its like they know were here starring at it.we didnt move or speak for a while.it took off across the sky then made a complete stop and shot straight up over some stars came back then slowly down and took off towards the ocean.the man we meet that nite,the lawyer,said he has done work for lochead and martin.he said he has seen jets,planes,etc.,but that we do not have anything in our military that can make those kinds of turns or just shoot up vertically and that fast.he said he didnt believe in ufos,but that next day he called everyone he knew to tell them what we had just witnessed.we ran back to our rooms woke up our wives to tell them what we just saw,that nite didnt sleep at all.i am now 100% believer and so is our friend from fort worth.
