Travel Theme: Roads

Where the rubber meets the sand…

Long-Dun Beach, Cameron Parish, Louisiana

Long-Dun Beach, Cameron Parish, Louisiana

Seeing vehicles driving on the sandy beaches along the Gulf of Mexico is nothing out of the ordinary. Long-Dun Beach in Cameron Parish is a fine example of a rustic beach (no facilities) on Louisiana’s Gulf Coast where beach goers happily drive right onto the sandy shoreline and proceed to pick the perfect parking spot for a day brimming with sun and fun at the beach. These drivable coastlines are treated as byways and standard rules of the road apply.

Long-Dun Beach is a lovely stretch of sand located along the 180 mile long Creole Nature Trail in far southwestern Louisiana. With 26 miles of blissful beachcombing heaven to choose from, the natural beaches of the Creole Nature Trail are perfect for finding driftwood, whelks, oysters, angel wings, and moon snails. With a little luck, you may even find a sea bean or two!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Colors

Posted by Jody on October 1, 2012

The Colors of Long Beach, Louisiana

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!”
