We were across the lake in Mandeville yesterday visiting relatives. I got the task of driving the truck back from the restaurant while my wife and her sister road the bikes along the lakefront. So when I saw this pair fishing in the sunset I pulled over and took the opportunity for a shot for the blog.
My wife grew up in Mandeville when it was a sleepy village of less than 2,000. Now it is very urbanized. But, the lakefront has kept its character. A great place for jogging, biking, fishing, even swimming -- about 20 years ago the lake was so polluted you would want to swim --that was caused by sewer dumping into canals then into the lake and dredging for clam shells. But today the lake is nearly back to its pristine beauty.
