Here Are Some High Altitude Shots of our

Our Home Is Dead Center in All These Pictures
The Whole of Cotile Lake
A Closer Shot
Our home is located where the white,
fallen-to-the-right, "C" is.
You Can Make out our Home more Clearly
The white, fallen-to-the-right, "C" is
actually our circular driveway; our driveway also extends on the south
side of our house down to the little apartment where our many guests have
stayed. Both our house and that apartment are dark gray from the
air. Our boathouse, having a tin roof, is that white rectangle
located on the lake, surrounded by the dark trees; it is almost on the
property line with our neighbor to the south. Our neighbors to the
north are only wild animals: so far, I've seen a family of beavers,
along with bats and possums and a whole lot of squirrels.
Taken by me
On September 4, 2001, the Rapides Parish
Police Jury began a "draw-down" on Cotile Lake. This is a
temporary move designed to kill off excess water vegetation.
On October 1, 2001, a friend invited me
to fly over the lake in his fifty-seven year old, "tail-dragger,"
former, U. S. Army Air Corp, Artillery Reconnaissance Airplane.
Here is a shot of the lake.
And one of our home.
God gave us our home; we have had lots of
guests whom he has sent to us.
