Weekly Photo Challenge: Colors
Posted by Jody on October 1, 2012
These are the colors of Long Beach, Louisiana.
Here, there aren’t any flashy neon signs, kitschy souvenir shops, or colorful boardwalk amusements. The beaches of Cameron Parish in the extreme southwestern corner of Louisiana are sparsely populated, undeveloped stretches of sand, surf and sun. The few folks we did see on Long Beach came well prepared with all of the provisions they needed to spend the day, including their own rainbow colored sun shade.
Long Beach is on the Gulf Of Mexico just east of the Texas/Louisiana boarder (LA Hwy 82). It’s one of the many easily accessible sandy strands along the 180 mile stretch of bayous, marshlands and beaches known as the Creole Nature Trail National Scenic Byway.
Special thanks to ThirdEyeMom for this week’s first Weekly Photo Challenge theme! After waiting days for WordPress to come out with this week’s Photo Challenge, she took the initiative and came up with her own theme. Thanks, “Mom!”
