It may not be what you expect, but in Southeast Louisiana...this is probably the closest we'll get to a White Christmas! A couple weeks ago, we took a drive slightly north to Baton Rouge to take in the beginning of the White Pelican migration. Soon there will be thousands that over winter in this particular spot at the Capitol Lakes Park adjacent to LSU's campus.
Unlike our State bird, the brown pelican, these beauties are sleek against the sky with black and white markings and gracefully drop to the water. We weren't the only ones taking in the sites...this venue is perfect for the whole family.
We hope to check them out once more before they head North, but it's time to get busy at the shop!
