Hiking

My family and I are lucky enough to live only a few miles from Sam Houston Jones State Park. Bob and I hiked the blue trail this morning. Bob is off every other Friday, so today was "date day." Because it was early, we had the trail to ourselves, very peaceful and serene. Lots of flora and fauna. After lunch on the patio at McAllister's, we attended the opening of a photography exhibit at McNeese, "Faces and Places of India," and listened to a talk by the traveler/artist, Carrie Chrisco. Very interesting. The show runs through this fall at the McNeese library.

Lots of fun.

Does anyone know what those pretty purple berries are?

The berries are on a Beauty Berry shrub. Very pretty, especially in the winter when the leaves are all gone. Sorry to hear about Snowflake. Sounds like you all are very busy.

The photos are other-worldly, at least from the viewpoint of someone from southwestern Pennsylvania. Those trees in the swamp look like they are from a Tolkien sort of world. And the berries are an incredible color!
