One of my most favorite view to photograph is a bayou or swamp. Here in West Monroe Louisiana alone has many different bayou areas to go, although, these photos below are all part of Cheniere Lake. I’m planning to go check out the other lakes soon and like Lake Darbone and others. A swamp might be a little creepy sometimes but if you will take your time and look around it, you’ll see that it’s really beautiful. For me, it’s magical!
Check out my bayou/swamp collections below. I hope you’ll enjoy and let me know what you think. I would be very grateful to hear you feedback.
A few days ago I celebrated my birthday ( I’m getting younger, hahaha ). This time I didn’t cook anything or having my friends come over the house. Instead, Sean and I attended an event called Tech To Market. Every speaker talked about how to turn your ideas into businesses. Guess who was the most awaited speaker of the night? It was Stephen Key! He is an award-winning inventor and entrepreneur who has licensed more than 20 products. It was a great night. After the event, we played checkers and had a little drink. I had orange juice by the way just so you know. And oh, I won more games than Sean did, hahaha!! After that, we decided to order something (well, it’s food). By 11 p.m we just crashed out to sleep since we couldn’t go anywhere because our ride was in the neighboring parking garage and it was already closed. Anyway, we had a great time.
If you’re a fitness junkie just so you know that this hotel includes a fully equipped fitness center. An in-house esthetician and massage therapist. Not just that, this hotel also has an indoor heated saltwater pool and many other amenities. You can also take advantage of enjoying their soft signature bathrobes while you relax in one of their all-suite rooms. Talking about the bathrobes, oh my goodness, it’s the most comfortable bathrobe I have ever worn so far. I went to bed in it and honestly, I didn’t need the comforter or sheets. I’m 4 foot and 11 inches tall so the robe was actually perfect for me. I was fully wrapped from my shoulders down to my tiptoes, hahaha. Funny, right? But, anyway I loved their robe!
Friday night, Sean took me to this seafood restaurant called Cheniere Shack Restaurant. I’ve heard about the place but never been there. This restaurant is a place of Southern Style Cuisine with Cajun Twist. I could say we were so lucky to get there in time. A few minutes after we got seated, diners were flooding in. I was so amazed at how fast the place filled with diners. This restaurant is located in West Monroe, Louisiana. They are open Monday-Saturday. So, if you’re planning to dine there on Sunday, no they’re not open on Sundays. We actually went there today after church, that’s how we found out that they’re not open on Sundays.
Their coleslaw is not overly flavored and not under flavored. For me, it’s perfect!
Oh my gosh, this platter was scrumptious! The blackened shrimp and the grilled shrimp had me drooling. It was fantastic! I usually can’t eat a lot, but this time I shocked myself. Hahahaha, it was that good! I will rate this menu a whopping 5 stars.
Shrimp Sampler Platter – $19.95
Includes/Your Choice Of:
Blackened Shrimp (4)
Boiled Shrimp (4)
Fried Shrimp (4)
Grilled Shrimp (4)
This mouth watering steak was so juicy and flavorful! Totally worth it for the price. Yum!
Cheesecake with Topping – $5.95 ( You need to have this). The slice was a little bigger than I expected. Sean and I had to share it. Wow, it was so delicious! Delicious cheesecake topped with your choice of topping: strawberry, caramel, chocolate, or raspberry.
I will totally recommend this place. If you haven’t been to this place yet, don’t wait, go and try their mouth watering food.
