A Trip Down Bayou Lafourche

Sunday evening after the sun and it’s blazing temperatures settled down, we took a little trip down Bayou Lafourche to where the bayou crosses the Intracoastal Waterway. It was a peaceful ride and I took a number of pictures and shared on social media as we traversed the water. We drive at speeds to fast to take in the scenery and I thought people would enjoy the contrast of a meandering trip on the water…

What happens when Lucy meets Dennis the Menace for an adventure?

This all started when Hubby and a good friend decided that they needed a camping boat to take to the hunting lease. What began as a search for an old boat on which to build a cabin with a couple of bunks soon turned into an attachment to an old sunken houseboat, which we promptly dubbed “The African Queen.” Hubby spotted this mess down an overgrown street along a wharf in Leeville, Louisiana as the…
