Village Creek...

In the deep South, where temperatures linger at 100 degrees in the shade, and a day with 90% humidity is considered "not so bad," you need a place to cool off. That place, if you live in the Big Thicket of Southeast Texas, is Village Creek.

It's a place that so many Southeast Texans hold near and dear to their hearts.

If you grew up around it, Village Creek becomes part of who you are.

It's hard to understand unless you're from there.

Cypress trees on the banks of Village Creek
It's more than just a place to swim, canoe, fish, BBQ, camp... It's a place to make memories... the kind that never go away.

  1. We are a river town in the little place I live. BUT can you believe they banned swimming in the river near the bridge area where folks of been swimming for hundreds of years!!! They were afraid of getting sued I believe! Kids still sneak in there and jump off of a 15 foot thing that stands in the water. I say Yeah for the sneaky ones

  2. A sweet hello from Frog Hollow Farm. Precious memories - thanks for sharing! Ciao, bella!

  3. Beautiful pics and with weather like that, I would be in that creek all the time. Have a wonderful weekend

  4. I love Cypress knees! We used to canoe in the back water of the intercoastal and would visit these little "villages of water people". Great photos!
