December Field Run



Two cousins, two dogs, and a late afternoon run in the field. I used to love doing the same thing when I was a kid. Actually, let me take that back. I still love doing it. 

I am still working my way through pics from our December trip. These were taken in the field in front of my family's home on the prairie land of south western Louisiana (Vermilion Parish). When most people think of south Louisiana they conjure up images of swamps and bayous, but there is actually quite a bit of prairie land: coastal prairie land where bison used to roam. Those wide open spaces make for some wonderful sunsets, spectacular cloud viewing, and lots of running.

I see your father's art in the last picture.

Your comment means a lot to me, Jeannette. My dad really did love those big clouds and prairie views.

Beautiful photos. Makes me want to get out NOLA the next time we're down there.

Such beautiful, carefree photos! I had no idea that there were prairie lands in Louisiana - swamps and bayous are indeed what I would have pictured. Would love to experience a December that was warm enough to run in the fields wearing shorts though!

Beautiful. And exactly what kids these days don't do enough of.

I would run too, if I had a field like that! Wonderful.
