I finally managed to go on a swamp tour.  I’ve been trying to for several years.  We chose Jean Lafitte Swamp Tours for this excursion.  We made a good choice and I’d use their service again.

It was a beautiful location.

We were riding in a boat just like this one.

This is our captain and tour guide.  He was local to the area and was knowledgeable, informative, friendly, and humorous.  He obviously loved the swamps and the plants and animals that live there.

Chips are good too.

Back Story

Christy, Jesse, and I took the Amtrak Crescent from the train depot in Anniston AL to New Orleans for a week of adventure and photography. This train station is a classical revival depot and is listed in the National Registry of Historical Places. Jesse loves to ride the train. Heck, we all love to ride the train. We left August 8, 2013 and returned August 14th. Unfortunately Jeremy couldn’t go this time. He had to work.
Christy’s father was kind enough to drive us to the train station and pick us up so we wouldn’t have to leave a vehicle parked there for a week.
We stayed at our usual place, the historic 905 Royal Hotel in the French Quarter. The 905 Royal was built in the late 1890’s.

See what else I’m doing.
