Bob took the photo
from a boat when we went to
several lighthouses with Bruce and Cheryl Roberts.
This lighthouse is at Madisonville LA,
but cannot be viewed from the town.
Some friends of ours hiked down the beach to it,
but say it was a terrible hike and don't attempt it.
We first viewed it from a marina across the water
from it, but our
photo wasn't very satisfactory as
you couldn't see it's black stripe
So when the Roberts offered us a chance to go with
them, we jumped at it. This day was dark and
stormy and Lake Ponchartrain was rough.
Only the men went out in the shallow boat,
and while I hated to miss getting closer to the
lighthouse, I was very glad to be ashore
when I saw them tossed
around in the boat.
I took the above photo from an
June 2005. It is on Lake Ponchartrain
we are happy that is was
not damaged in Hurricane Katrina.
