Trout Lake Part 2

I think I pretty much explained everything yesterday, and this is a larger gallery,Β so I don’t want to tie you up with too much chatter. There is one thing I think needs to be cleared up just so nobody gets confused as to what they’re looking at here. Because of the very nature of Trout Lake, you might get the idea that you’re looking at pictures from two separate locations, or maybe even three, but I assure you, I never left the park until I went home. What I did do, was walk from where I entered the park, over to the shoreline, and starting there, I circumnavigated the Lake one time, hanging in as close to the shore as I could get. At times, that’s like walking along any lake-shore, with wide-open spaces, a spattering of large trees, and people relaxing with a good book, or maybe playing with their dogs. At other times, however, you get into the preserved wetland areas, and if you look in one direction, it may look just like any other park, but simply turn around, and it can appear that you are lost in the deepest, darkest swamp area that you’ve ever seen.

Now when it looks like I’m standing in the middle of the Louisiana bayous, I’m most likely making use of a patch of high, dry ground to take the picture from, or perhaps I’m on one of the boardwalks that are built right out into the wetland areas. I guarantee you, I managed to keep my feet dry the whole time, and if you’re wondering why I would bother taking shots of what looks at times like nothing more than a big tangle of shrubs, you might want to enlarge the picture, because I’m probably trying to show you the kind of early growth that I found in the swamp. But anyway, I just wanted you to know that despite the difference in appearance, all these shots were taken at Trout Lake. So here we go.

And there you have it. By the way, that floating dock you saw with all the seagulls on it is actually the diving platform in the summer, and that whole area, occupied at this time of year by all those gulls and ducks, is actually the beach area during the warmer weather. Due to the shallow depth of the water, Trout Lake is great if you like swimming in nice warm water. So everybody stay healthy, and happy, and keep working on those Blogs that I love to read so much. Take care, God Bless, and we’ll see you soon.

    1. I am feeling somewhat better and I think I might even live, so I’m glad you enjoyed Trout Lake, and I’ll send you some reciprocal wishes for a great week-end yourself; may the sun threaten to burn us up, or at least make us toasty brown. πŸ™‚

    1. I truly do appreciate the wonderful compliments, especially since I am feeling well enough that I was just thinking about heading out to gather a few more pictures to add to my stash (which is running somewhat low). But before I left, I just wanted you to know, my very lovely Brooding young friend, that having just had them checked by a very qualified person of the medical persuasion, I can assure you that my red blood cells are of such number as to be considered absolutely normal. I shall leave it up to you, my most favorite studious friend, to figure out why that is of importance in regard to your last missive. πŸ˜‰ πŸ™‚
