On July 2th, Wayne Lynch, David Seals, Marty Lynch, Linda and Dwight Cox and our tour guide to the Purple Martin Island, plus six other people went on a fast, very warm boat ride 40 minutes. But our reward was observing migrating Purple Martins swarming in for the evening to roost on a small island. These tours will last a few more weeks. Check the Lake Ouachita activities website & call to make your reservation. Only 20 people per trip may experience this captivating view.
