Fontainebleau Park on the North Shore is one of those very tranquil places where you can go to hear birdsongs and check out the turtles, dragonflies and occasional alligator without much interference.
As it turned out, there was somebody camped out semi-permanently - the ranger.
Last August, Hurricane Isaac flooded that side of the lake and the park with 8-feet of water. The trails were still a mess and the marvelous boardwalk that leads out over the swamp was completely torn apart.
