Lazy day today.  Took many short walks with the dogs and was glad to get back inside the cool RV.  Watched a couple of movies, took a short nap, and read some.  Rode my bike this evening when the sun was blocked by the trees. 

I had forgotten about the road that leads to the other side of the park.  Rode my bike there and got some nice shots of the Museum. 

This is actually the back of the house but used as an entrance.
This  is the side of the house.

This is the front of the house facing the river.  Nice summer home, don't you think?
Boy what a view from the front porch.
Every side of this house is beautiful.

Frank Otis, whose family owned Otis Manufacturing in New Orleans, purchased the property from the Houlton family in 1936 and used the residence as a summer home until his death in 1962. He bequeathed the house and 99 acres to the state of Louisiana, requesting it be used for public recreation. The house was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1999.

Cooking chili mac for supper.  The movie tonight is "The Debt."
