This morning’s walk was a “Dear Diary” one, with a couple of unique encounters.
First, at the spot where Boudreaux likes to take a restorative dip in the water, was a large bald eagle apparently taking a break from fishing.
The eagle was in no hurry at all to leave, even though gulls were doing their best to shoo it away. It was quite a show.
Then we ran across something totally unexpected, even for Washington Street. A large Navy contingent from Belle Chasse, La., complete with a goat named Sid, was preparing for what I was told was a reenactment of the War of 1812. A mini “fleet” was at the ready. Now, my knowledge of military history is scant, but I’m guessing the goat didn’t have a role in the war.
An eagle, a goat on a leash and a military reenactment. So, how was your morning?
