Labor Day Weekend

We spent Labor Day weekend in one of the best places to fish in the state of Louisiana; Grand Isle.  Such great memories of wonderful times spent at a family member's camp, right on the beach of Grand Isle. The weather was warm and we spent a lot of time on our boat. We explored the Gulf, the Leeville marsh and some Fourchon area marshes.

Anne made sure to take some pictures of some of the camps and scenery to share with you. In Grand Isle, camps can be anywhere from small getaways to large, beautiful showplaces.

Most camps have unique names. Here are a few:
Sea La Vie

Beach Blessing

A couple places to visit would include the local sno-ball stand and the popular restaurant Hurricane Hole.

We caught plenty of fish but many were undersized. Here are some of the types of fish we caught:

Gafftopsail Catfish

Spot Approving of the Release

Undersized Mangrove Snapper

Spotted Seatrout aka Speckled Trout


Black Drum

Speckled Trout

The Obligatory Shark

One of the mornings we were returning from fishing, there was a huge Trump parade of boats. There were hundreds of boats organized for a ride and it was something we had never experienced. Nearly all were decorated with American and pro-Trump flags.

Grand Isle is such a wonderful asset to South Louisiana. Here are a few beautiful photos of a coastal sunrise, sunset and some storm clouds on the horizon.

  1. Oh, my gosh, those sunset photos. What colors!! Glad you guys enjoyed such a great weekend. The vacation homes along this beach remind me of some of the pretty places at Galveston. Hop you will able to catch enough for a fish fry.

    1. Yes, the sunrises and sunsets were amazing! I do want to visit Galveston beach. May have to add that to a future bucket list? Take care, friend.

  2. Thanks so much for linking up with me at my #UnlimitedMonthlyLinkParty 16, open until September 26!
