Black Bayou Lake, LA // Weekend Recap LinkUp


Happy Monday everyone!

How was your weekend? I will give it a try and bring the "Weekend Recap" back to life, so feel free to link up your posts below.

My weekend was so and so. Ups, and downs. Saturday I gave the local Mayhaw Festival another chance. Ummmm... well... It was alright. But I might skip it next year. It felt good hanging out with my German friend though, since I miss speaking German and I have a slight feeling I am slowly loosing my native tongue.

I took off again this morning, and visited the Black Bayou Lake National Park.



Let me tell you: I've had a WONDERFUL time! I actually planned on going to Little Rock and do a hike somewhere on the trails up there. But since it is so warm and sunny already, I gave Google a try and found this lake not even 1.5 hrs away.

If you ask me, Louisiana is like Arkansas' cooler sibling.

While Arkansas, to me, feels more Hillbilly-esque, Louisiana has this rad coolness. More class. Might be the swamps. Or the Alligators. Or all the French stuff. I don't know. But as soon as I cross the border, I feel a little better. Almost relieved. I mean hello? They sell alcohol on Sundays. #NuffSaid

  

I have spent almost 3 hours walking the boardwalk, looking around the visitor center, and taking pictures. I saw a whole bunch of creatures, like snakes, a red headed lizard, different birds.... It was even a little creepy walking around all alone, hearing a "SPLASH" a couple of feet away, wishing or hoping it was - well - not an alligator. Secretly I was hoping to see one though.

      
  

And my wish came true! I was actually on my way back to the car, when a gentleman pointed me into a certain direction. There it was. My first real alligator. Wildlife. Not dead. Not in a zoo. It was breathtaking!
