So, it’s Mother's Day. The one day of the year I am guaranteed to do most anything I want to do. Today was a beautiful day, so naturally, I wanted to be outdoors. I wanted to explore a park I’ve never been to before. I wanted to walk. I wanted to find wildflowers. I settled on the Pintail Wildlife Drive, a 3-mile car path through marsh grass in Cameron Parish. I’ve been there before, several times. But they recently added a boardwalk, and I hadn’t been there since its completion. Pintail is part of the scenic Creole Nature Trail.
We saw plenty of wildflowers.
Pintail is a great place to bird watch.
My favorite wading bird is the roseate spoonbill. I was thrilled to see a couple spoonbills at Pintail today!
It’s a great place to spy alligators, too! We initially kept tabs on how many we saw, but quickly lost count.
How did you spend your Mother's Day?
