The new Maurice Branch of the Bank of Abbeville opened recently. It is on Maurice Avenue right across from the church. For a couple of days this past week, while they were tearing down the old building, the only thing standing was the vault.   Maurice has changed quite a bit since I moved here in...

I love the spring; it is my favorite time of the year. This picture of the sunrise over our pond was taken last week, Easter morning. It really doesn't get much better than this. Over the years, as a Realtor, I've helped several of my clients find their own little piece of paradise like this. If ...

This place was screaming for a picture. This is the Depot Gift Shop and Train Museum on Lafayette Street in Abbeville. There is so much going on in the little side yard. I really love the way the picture turned out after I spent a little bit of time playing with it. Most of this was achieved with...

Yes, it is a real car up in the tree. This car has been there for as long as I can remember (15+years). My husband says that there used to be another car in that tree when he was a child. Why they keep putting cars in the tree, I'm not sure. To make people talk, perhaps? I was tempted to say "onl...

My daughter and I drove around this weekend searching for cemeteries and cool places to photograph.

Farmers have started to cut canes in our fields in and around Lafayette. If you are going to be on the roads, especially country roads, please use extra caution for the next few weeks.

State St. in front of Comeaux Café, whi...

I notice the sign, "Le Musée à Maurice," a few days ago while going to the post office. I was very happy to see that the old Villien Bros building will be brought back to life. This building used to be on Church Street behind the Villien store which had been the Maurice Flea Market for many years...
