This afternoon was a lovely, warm, 75 degrees and the lake and sky was a blue so gorgeous I long to be a poet so I could pen words to do it justice.
Last weekend, we attended a wedding reception on the south side of Cross Lake. I had forgotten how pretty that side of the lake is and decided then to take a drive at the first opportunity. Today was the perfect day! I know this beautiful weather won't last, so I made the most of the afternoon.
I hope you enjoy our beautiful corner of Louisiana.
These were taken at Ford Park. Cypress trees are plentiful on the lake and I love taking their picture! They have such unusual shapes and roots. The clear day allowed wonderful reflections in the water.
Notice all the "knees" which are really roots around this grandaddy of a tree.
Doesn't this boardwalk just invite you to walk down and around the corner to see what you can see?
More lovely shadows.
Here are a few things I saw from the boardwalk and pier.
Lots of water fowl could be seen everywhere. Here is a Mallard and hens who were a little skittish with me around. I was hoping for Pelicans, but maybe another time.
After I left the park, I continued my drive around the lake. I will share more pictures of my outing next time.
I hope your day was as beautiful as mine!
