Photos From the Edge of the World — Pointe-aux-Chenes, LA

img_0838

Part of our trip to Louisiana included a 2.5 hour drive to the boot tip of the state. Chet is working on a project (involving coastal erosion and drones and all sorts of fascinating things!) that required some footage to be gathered from the area. It seriously felt like we were on the edge of world. If you check out this marina on Google maps you can see our route through Pointe-aux-Chenes down to the water. Basically a road with a little strip of land, and water on both sides. On your own two feet (or buzzing down the road in a car) you would never guess how very little land there is in this area. The drone footage Chet shot seriously put this area into perspective. The fact that folks manage to live and work and play on these tiny, slowly eroding peninsulas boggles my mind.

The landscape is breathtaking. And I took about a million pictures.
