This is a scene post Katrina of remains of the well known and loved Vera's seafood restaurant on Lakeshore Dr. in Slidell, LA. It was a pretty big building built on pilings on Lake Pontchartrain where customers could sit at tables and see sail boats pass, boats with fisherman, and sunsets in the evening. The place was always packed, and patrons were willing to wait to be seated. Katrina's storm surge came on August 29, 2005 and picked up the entire restaurant like a match box and dropped it on the shore. All that remained were the pilings, pieces of broken wood, bricks, and that ONE empty bottle of BEER on the heap of ruins. Vera's has since reopened but in a location 6 miles away from the lakefront. The seafood is just as good as it used to be, but the ambiance of surrounding water activities and sunsets are lost. Mother Nature can be a beauty AND a b**ch.
