The Calm Before the Storm

A lazy sunday with the Barretts in Louisiana starts with coffee on the porch of The Camp, overlooking Moss Lake

Moss Lake, LA

Lake Charles, LA

Several hours later, it progresses to Chris and Stephanie’s on the banks of the Contraband Bayou

Lake Charles, LA

where I expect to see a pirate ship at any moment but instead got a gator

A relaxed game of washers continues unabated

Lake Charles, LA

Light a fire

Lake Charles, LA

open some wine

Perhaps the less said about the pomegranate tequila the better…

Except for these empty glasses and smiling faces!

Lake Charles, LA

Play with the dog, Loux

Lake Charles, LA

Watch the sun set over the bayou

Lake Charles, LA

And finish the night with Bev’s amazing gumbo

Lake Charles, LA

The secret: use deer sausage and don’t skimp on the butter!

And the piece de resistance, Mardi Gras cupcakes:

Lake Charles, LA

Because the Mardi Gras madness starts tonight!

Brace yo’selves…
