Our little trip was to Shreveport
 
Click on the link to learn a little about it...
This was our hotel room...
it was at Sam's Town Casino....
it was such a nice room...
very reasonably priced too...
 

I saw this little farm on the way....
wish I could have got closer to it...
 
but when we are traveling...
Hubby is always ready to get where we are going...
and get back home from where we've been...
 

I've only been to Shreveport once...
that was before I got my good camera....
so I was really excited to get out and about...
 
the weather was really dreary the whole time...
they even had a few snow flurries on Friday...
we were eating lunch....
the locals were getting excited...
snow rarely ever happens there...
it didn't last long......or stick...thank goodness...
 

After breakfast on Saturday Hubby and I took a walk...
down by the Red River....
so much to take photos of....
 

 
It was a bit foggy....
kind of chilly...
but after a bit of walking...
didn't feel bad at all...
 

 
 
I almost missed this guy...
I walked right past the tree...
but I happened to look back at a big bird condo they had...
there he was in all his red glory....
 

looking at the river...
seeing the some what river boats...
made me think of the movies and books from the old days...
the big boats going down the river...
the Movie Maverick came to mind...
I would love to go back when the weather is warmer...
when the town is in full swing...
a lot of history in this town....
I just love the accents...the combination of French...
and I'm not for sure what...
it almost sounds like they are singing when they talk...
good friends of ours were from Louisiana...
they are both gone now...
but I loved listening to them talk...
boy could they cook shrimp...crab...and crawdads...
Miss you Sharon and Cotton....

Nice & comfortable hotel room, charming farm & sturdy girders of the bridge - and the beautiful red bird: Is it a cardinal ?

The Red River Revel is a fun time. You'd love the photo opportunities and make good use of them!! That room is beckoning me... LOL! Great photos, Deb. blessings ~ tanna

Sure looks like you had a good time!!! How many photos did you take of the fog?
They have moved us to a new classroom with computers, so I can browse while I eat my lunch... I should do up some posts when I am at home, too...

That cardinal picture was awesome. He stood out. So Sam's Casino. We went to Shreveport this past May for the first time and stayed at the Horseshoe Casino. It was really nice and we enjoyed the casino too. Especially my daughter who came home $300 richer. Can't say that myself. ;o)
Great pictures as always
