Egret Island


Before returning to Austin, my favorite aunts and me, along with my mom, oldest daughter, Angelique, and my wonderful granddaughter, Caitlin, drove through the Jungle Gardens at Avery Island. Its trails are tight but big enough for a motor home, so it was great that we could take the whole tour with all the comforts of home.

Path through Jungle Gardens
Picnic under the old oak tree
There were winding stone steps along the bayou and every now and then you see alligators lurking in the murky water.
The muted sunlight through the cypress trees reflecting into the swamp was dreamy and quite beautiful.
