From Mary’s desk:
When you take as many pictures as Jim and I do, its easy to forget where you were when. Everything wants to just rumble together. Its nice to take a day and just enjoy pictures, review fun places, and people we’ve met.
The pelican is Louisiana’s State Bird. We’ve seen a number of them. Aren’t hey magnificent creatures? These were taken at an unforgettable place, too. Venice, our hop off place to Pilot Town, and the coldest boat ride I’ve ever had. I chuckle every time I think of it.
From childhood, trees have had an affect on me. I enjoyed climbing them, enjoyed the woods and watched my Dad log and cut pulp. Logging was a fascinating and exciting time in the past. Now I’m a tree hugger. Louisianans revere their trees, though lamenting cutting down all the cypress. Here are some beauties.
