The video above consists of photos taken from a “shore walk” around the lagoons in New Orleans’ City Park
The music is by Roger Hodgson and the group Supertramp. No claim is made to it.
Please be patient, the video takes a minute to load and is over 4 minutes long.

New Orleans is surrounded by water.
The Mississippi River runs through it.
Lake Ponchartrain looms large north of the city.
Bayou St. John saunters majestically into the middle of New Orleans.
We have many running events that blaze through New Orleans. What about an event that highlights the natural beauty that surrounds us?
I was inspired by an event that happens in Manhattan every year and thought “why not here?” The Lafitte Corridor is the site of an annual 3 mile walk through the middle of the city. But, what about an event that highlights New Orleans’ largest asset?… water.
We wouldn’t need to re-invent the wheel to do it… the event could be modeled after an already successful event… visit the links for more information –> http://shorewalkers.org/the-great-saunter-2014
California TV station KCET did a story on the Shore Walkers. You can view it in the link:
Who thinks New Orleans Shore Walk could become an event in New Orleans? Who has ideas to make it happen? Who will walk with me?
Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen, others make it happen.
