Av and I decided to take the Creole Nature Trail through Southwest Louisiana. It’s a Natural Scenic Byway, and it took us about four hours to drive the loop (and stop several times for pictures and fun).
There were *so many* things to see! First of all, and I didn’t get a real picture of a single one, but we saw maybe…five or six alligators swimming! We would be driving, see an alligator, but there really weren’t many good places to pull over. Then we would tell ourselves that there would be a better place to stop at the next alligator, but there wasn’t! So it was totally thrilling to see alligators like that, in real life…even though I didn’t get to take a good pic. But it was so, so neat.
Here’s a little movie of the beach (my camera going in and out of focus on the waves makes it a little dreamy):
Next, we took a car ferry to Cameron. It was my first time to be on a car ferry! For some reason, they wouldn’t allow people to stand outside their cars, but it was fun anyway!
Here’s everyone on the ferry:
