Three Rivers Arts Festival

Andrew & I went to Covington this weekend to check out the 11th annual Three Rivers Arts Festival. Being from Shreveport, of course it reminded me of the Red River Revel arts festival and made me a little homesick for some muffaletta pizza and turkey legs. Covington is a beautiful little south Louisiana town located in the Northshore area of Lake Ponchartrain. It's downtown area is very charming and traditional and the weather was just phenomenal. We saw blocks and blocks of works by talented local artists and got to catch a musical performance by two of Andrew's jazz guitar heroes, his former guitar instructor at Southeastern, Hank Mackie, and Jimmy Foster, renowned maker of fine handmade guitars (including the coveted 7-string version that Andrew adores). Kudos to my husband for suggesting such a fun Sunday outing -- fall doesn't last long down here so you really have to savor it while you can.
