Pointe Mouillée State Game Area
Painted en plein air on 10/19/20 at Pointe Mouillée State Game Area.
Pointe Mouillée translates into something like, "wet pointe." The name comes from the French who originally came to the Great Lakes region in the 17th and 18th centuries. Today, Pointe Mouillée State Game Area is one of, "...the largest fresh water marsh restoration project(s) in North America..." (Monroe News). I often feel like I am inside of a Dutch Golden Age landscape when I am there as I walk along the high dikes and look down into the canals that run alongside them.
