It's a lake walk

Staying on the Mandeville Lakefront again today. This family was walking along the grassy shore by the harbor. With the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway in the background, the family meanders along the bright lake waves. The lake walk is a popular pastime for the lakefront community north of New Orleans.

Other "Lake" and "sea" related shots on City Daily Photo pages today:

That seems like my time of past time: biking along that shore abd the lake shining under the sun. Dreamy.

This is a very appealing silhouette. Like it very much.

The family could also be a sculpture, don't you think?

I used to cycle out to Lake Mandeville often when I lived in New Orleans. A beautiful place to kick back and relax. Seems to have retained its beauty after all the city's been through. Thanks for more great photos of this place. It brings back good memories.
