Oh yes, in October I took a mini break to a place my Dad would talk about on our vacation to my Grandfather and Grandmother’s home in Southeast Louisiana. Each time we would pass by and on our way back home.
Well anyway, I decided to visit this beautiful place. ( The Cafe serves delicious food, my new favorite is a Muffuletta Sandwich. 🙂
I can imagine a couple strolling along this oak tree .
My first attempt to capture these lovely oak trees.
Oh, the beautiful oak trees my Dad Loved to talk about. Of course, his father,his uncles and his brother and him were the one who planted these lovely trees back in the late 40’s.
I could not leave without a photo shot of this landmark sign.
Pink flowers on this quiet peaceful walk..
I turned towards the flower and got a lovely surprise
How time went by fast. The whole tour takes an hour and a half. But with me it would have probably took longer.
Last but not least a view of A beautiful view of Lake Peigneur(It’s French.. Google translator pronounce the name correct.)
A lovely view with a reminder of the past. Beneath Lake Peigneur is a Salt a Mine.
Now, there is a lot of information on Jefferson Island on Nov 20-21, 1980,which is on YouTube video documentary Lake Peigneur sinkhole disaster
(For anyone who wants to know more about Lake Peigneur. I won’t go into details.)
A reminder of the past.
The top of a drilling rig. Nov. 20,1980
Now, I have always heard about a house going into the Lake. This could be the chimney but I am not quite sure.
I have to admit these photo shots came out very nice and my favorite ones on my mini break, which, I do not go on often. Maybe in 2017, I will go on another mini break to Rip Van Winkle Gardens. But never know with me.
Have a wonderful weekend. 🙂
