Louisiana Swamp Tours Are In Full Swing With The Springtime Weather

The sunset, last night... You could have been here

A Wild Violet

Just a few weeks ago, the frost was still clinging to the flowers every morning, but here lately it seems I may not need to light up the wood stove again this season. Spring has sprung!

Although the images below were fun to shoot with my camera on macro, I know if you are from the north you don't want to see frost covered vegetation as seen below.

But here's the good news...

Those images were taken about two weeks ago and since it has been very mild in the evening and even warm enough to wear shorts and sandles in the afternoon.

A cutomer called and asked about the Acadiana Nature Station as an RV park, so here are the images I took for him that day.

There is a great playground for the kids in the front,
complete with tennis courts and a disc golf course,

but the best part of the RV park operated by the Lafayette Parish government is the walking trails in back as seen below.
The trails are well marked and immaculately maintained

There rest stops along the way for the weary,
lazy, or comtemplative amoung us,

The curator of the nature center is a hero and inspiration of mine
and operates the nature station and manages the trails in true wilderness form, see the signs below,There are many surprizes that will put a smile on your face along the way, as seen below

And not to overlook, the RV parking is magical,A water-front picnic?

Clean, shady, well maintained, and quiet, ahhhh.....
