This isn’t the most recent meetup, but the one before that. (I told you I was behind.) Madisonville is on the Tchefuncte River where it drains into the north end of Lake Pontchartrain, and is kind of a weekend spot for New Orleans. In the 18th and 19th centuries, anyone who could afford to get the fuck out of NOLA during the hottest months did so, and this is one of the places that they went. A lot of people still own vacation homes here, and a lot more people rent.
The Tchefuncte River Lighthouse is another one of Louisiana’s few surviving (mostly) lighthouses.
There was this rusty old boat anchored just offshore. I have no idea if it’s still in use, but I hope that toilet on the deck isn’t.
The marina is draining its water into the adjacent cemetery. I wonder what the West Nile Virus rates are for the people who live across the street from it?
