LAKE PONCHARTRAIN'S BEACH

Got up early this morning to head out to the beach before it got too hot.  Rode my bike and went alone.  I packed the doggie carriage but forgot to pack the wheels.  I always seem to forget something.  Poor little Tzus had to stay in the RV and miss walking in the sand.

Xi Shi heard a dog barking in the distance and I took the opportunity to snap a photo of her intense look.

Cha Bu also listening intently.

So around 8:00 this morning I was wading in the lake.  The water was cool and clear and it felt great.  Just a few folks walking around which was a big change from yesterday when all the little kiddies were here having fun in the sun.  Later this afternoon they were busing them in by the truckloads.





Last time I was here it was cold so I didn't venture off very far from the cement walk way.  However, today I went to the end of the sandy beach and totally enjoyed the area.  It was so strange to see trees and shade on a beach.  Just love it.

I could have stayed at this spot all day.











Met this nice couple and their Great Dane.

Rode over to the fishing pier.



The small waves were lapping the shore and the sound is oh so soothing to me.   


I stayed about an hour then returned to the RV to break camp.  Rode by the beach on the way out with intentions of letting the dogs walk around on the sand but there were those bus loads of small children heading that way so we just continued on to our house.  Got home around 2:00 this afternoon.  I am planning a return trip to this park as soon as we get our first cold spell.

    1. Hi Chris...I'm surprised to hear that you are not going back to New Mexico and Arizona. I am planning to follow the coast then cross over Florida to hug the coast up to Myrtle Beach. However, that could change. Just depends how much I like what I see. It would be great to meet up somewhere in Florida. I'll only be gone for the month of November so don't know if you'll be down by then. Let's keep in touch. Good to hear from you.
