Looking Down from Above! My Little Town...


 I can't believe another Friday has rolled around. I get to go to grandparents' day at Shelby's daycare (Friday). It will be wild, but I am looking forward to us having some one on one time together. (She's 3.)
  Now I thought this would be a fun post to show you pictures of my little town from above! The husband of a teacher friend of mine owns a small airplane, and he frequently flies overhead. Mike took these pictures a few months ago. Becky gave me permission to borrow the pics.
The first two pics are of Logansport High School (LA). Our whole parish (DeSoto Parish) built new schools a few years ago except for one small rural school, and it received a renovation. This school houses Pre-K through 12th grades.  

 Logansport sits right on the Sabine River which runs into Toledo Bend. Toledo Bend is a sportsman's paradise. Maybe one day I can get some pics of that. It's a man made lake. If you cross the bridge here, you will enter into the state of Texas. We do shopping on both sides of the river. In Texas, you don't have to pay sales tax on groceries. We don't have much here, so we mostly have to travel to get groceries and anything else. There are a few shops downtown. We have a couple of restaurants, and not one grocery store. At least it's only a couple of miles into Texas to get groceries.
 This is another shot of downtown from the south side. Word is the state is building a new highway north of town. We will dry up and blow away then!
 Now if you follow this road away from the river going east, you will pass my street. I only live about a mile from downtown.
 We do have a nice riverfront park area. I will have to take pics of that some day. It's the prettiest in the spring. I love to go down there and have a picnic while watching the river traffic, etc.
  I hope you enjoyed my little tour. Have a great weekend everyone!
