Another Drive

We drove the Creole Nature Trail today, it includes Sabine WLR, Rockefeller WLR and Cameron Prairie WLR, Ken was hoping to get some bird photos. We found that the hurricanes hit the area hard in September. The WLR's were closed and repairing buildings and roads washed out. Sabine is to reopen tomorrow and we did walk the trail some. We drove by the Gulf of Mexico and saw the damage, basically the little beach towns of Holly Beach, Rutherford Beach, Cameron, Oak Grove and Grand Chenier are gone. Some homes have been repaired, some have been replaced but many are just gone you just see where they were. We saw graveyards but no church nearby. Surprisingly tho, the trees especially the oaks still stand, nature has basically survived but man is struggling to survive in this area.


We did see birds but were not able to stop on the busy roads to look or photograph them, we saw several Roseate Spoonbills, Egrets, Herons, Ducks, Cormorants, Kingfishers, Shrikes and others we couldn't idenify.
Maybe tomorrow, we'll go visit Lake Charles.
