A coworker told me that I had to go to this restaurant because of the scenery. Or more precisely the flooded Ouachita river.
Squint and look at the bridges. They are about a foot above the water. The scenery was beautiful!
The food was good too. I started out with a simple garden salad.
It was more expensive than I'm used to and I saw one of my favorite desserts.
The chicken Alfredo was excellent! I sat out on the porch just inches above the water. I asked if they had flooded and the waiter said it was close but no water came inside.
Cream Bruele! Yum! They could have held the flame back just a touch but the base was a perfect consistency. I'll give the meal 🌟🌟🌟🌟
After supper, I went out onto the levy.
I took a short walk. It was about 69 degrees with just enough clouds to make a beautiful sunset.
It was beautiful any way that you looked at it.
The water was just feet away from the bottom of the bridge.
The entrance on to the bridge was at least 8 feet below the top of the levy. So if the flood waters got that high, all the water would flood into the nearby streets.
Sorry but I can't get that concept out of my head.
There were several pine trees on the road side of the levy. This is the kind of pine tree that I would like at the farm.
On the way back I found myself taking pictures of the pretty weeds and giggling. Grandma Stella Field used to make grandpa stop to take pictures of the pretty weeds in the road ditches when they were on vacation.
Here is the view to the other direction. I can tell the water is high. But unless I go back to the area I will not understand how high this actually is right now.
I was sitting on the deck at the restaurant. Less than a foot away from flooding. Although you would think that this view begs the same question as the end of the bridge, it doesn't. There is a "sea wall" on the other side of the restaurant.
I would hate to see their flood insurance cost. ...just saying
