We loved Louisanna, there were so many interesting things to see and do. We sampled Boudin Balls the first day, sausage and rice balls with a bread crust deep-fried. We also sampled Crawdads, tasty, but a lot of work to eat. Crawdads are a by-product of the Rice paddies.
My photos are of the Swamp Tour. It was an hour-long in a flat bottomed metal boat. The operator gave us a continuous dialogue of what we were seeing while running over logs and speeding around others! I don’t know about the other occupants, but I was scared to death we would tip over and have to swim with the gators. The first picture is of a boat like ours.
This is a picture of Martin Lake we crossed on our way to the swamp.
The Cypress trees with Spanish Moss.
More trees and pretty flowers, but shouldn’t get out of the boat to pick them, it is all water under them.
I held a foot long aligator, was interesting until he peed on me.
This fellow was waiting for us to return from out tour looking for lunch. We sat in the boat for 20 minutes, waiting for him to get tired of waiting and move on.
I hope you enjoyed pictures of my travels, have a million more of them, and may take more if we decide to travel in the future.
