Articles about nearby home of local, internationally known artist,
George Dunbar beautifully describing life on the bayou.
His home is just up the bayou and can be seen from 1056 Peninsula Drive:
"It's not like mountains, which bowl you over immediately. Here, the landscape creeps up on you until one morning, you wake up totally addicted: The textures change throughout the year; the colors shift; the water flows in and out, fast or slow. It's subtle and, eventually, quite hypnotic." - George Dunbar
"I love museums, but I don't want to live in one," Dunbar said. "My house is a place to show art, but it's also for serving lunch to friends, for watching sunsets, for feeling the breeze from the bayou. It's a place to relax with a drink – just look at my bar. Who expects vodka rocks from a museum? " - George Dunbar
Article about Heritage Park Marina to Be Built on Bayou Bonfouca:
"Progress on plans to create a marina in Slidell’s Heritage Park has been as meandering and slow-moving as the bayous that snake through St. Tammany Parish, but the long-awaited project is finally getting close to launch.
The Slidell City Council voted last week to provide $600,000 to meet the city’s share of a federal grant to repair bulkheads and build a marina with space for 42 boats, nine slips and a floating docking space. City Councilman Bill Borchert, who has pushed the project, said construction could begin June 1 and take up to nine months."
