Poverty Point State Park
On Mother's Day, we don't fight the crowds trying to get into a restaurant. Instead, we have a tradition of packing a picnic lunch and heading off to explore. In the early years, we usually found one of the rare picnic tables available at the Vicksburg National Military Park. This year, however, my wife, Karen, wanted to go to Poverty Point State Park in Delhi, Louisiana. Above are some of the birds — and turtles — we spotted around the vast man-made lake. It's a gorgeous place over there. Black Bear Golf Course is located right next to the lake. I have played golf there many times, but this was the first time I had explored the road around the lake. It was quite impressive with many pretty homes located along its shore. I'll be going back because it is a great place to watch the sun set and rise!
