Slow sundown sashay

What is your favorite time for that daily walk along the lakefront? Is it that long-shadow time as the sun is fluffing up it's pillow for the night.

Here, two couples enjoy the stroll along Mandeville's lakefront. You can still get a glimpse of the sun under the canopy of the 100-year-old Live Oak trees, but the shadows stretch for dozens of yards across the grass carpet. It's a bit cooler than the afternoon, but still the humidity keeps your walk to slow stroll.. as they say in New Orleans, a slow sashay.

"Sashay" is the perfect word for this!

I love getting up early in the morning to go for walks. I like that it's still quiet and there isn't alot of cars along the road. Nice photo.

oh it's my favorite time of the day ...no matter what i am going through somehow watching the sun go down calms me.....and when it comes to weather, its the same sticky situation in evenings here .....

very pretty photo, Steve. I could imagine myself sitting down there under the shade of stately Oaks watching people as they "sashay" along the lakefront :)

I agree rambling around - i am now going to use this term on my late afternoon walks in the humidity.
Sashay - how lovely - but i think i may need a parosol.
