I love capturing portrait and family photos but I’m a nature photographer at heart. Capturing nature photos, such as bayous, is very soothing for me. I call it my stress reliever. What is your stress reliever?
A few days ago I visited two bayous in my local area and I was surprised by what I saw. Both areas are supposed to have docks. However, that day I couldn’t see the docks. The water was so high that the docks were totally underwater. We had severe thunderstorms the day prior to my visiting the different bayous. Sadly, Ruston, our neighboring city, was hit by a tornado that spawned from the same storm that hit our city. That tornado took two lives – a mother and her son. Ruston is still recovering and needs our prayers.
Anyway, it was a bright and windy afternoon. I’m glad the humidity wasn’t bad at all. I was able to stay a little longer and enjoyed my time there. Below, are just a few bayou photos I took. I’m not done working on it but I thought I would share to you.
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.
