My Photo: Memorial Visit From October

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 could just imagine a couple walking along these oak and having a picnic beneath those oak tree.

If oak trees could talk, they would whisper how a young boy, his brother,his father and his uncles planted them in a straight line and walked from each oak trees in 1940.

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.

How time went by fast. The whole tour takes an hour and a half. But for me with camera 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. Y'all see this Lake sit on top of a Salt Dome 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.)

I always heard about the house that went into the Lake. Well, here's a view of the chimney

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.  🙂
