Our Last Hours in the Swamp

Sunday afternoon we took one more ride in the boat with no seats. This time we ventured deep {well, deep enough for us} into the swamp with Lisa & Glenn. I just can’t tell you how peaceful it was. We had a few hours before the steaks & shrimp were to be cooked, so there was no rush. Tim was able to fish in the swamp and caught this Louisiana Large Mouth.  He had to have weighed at least a pound or two. 🙂

After a couple of hours boating around in the swamp, we went back to Lisa & Glenn’s and decided to go meet Clint. He was home with a few of his friends, just doing what most people do around there…eating odd things LOL. We pulled up to his house {me with my backpack filled with everything we needed to document our meeting} and around the corner we came. He knew we were in town {like everyone else}, but I don’t think he was prepared for the excitement of my camera, signing autographs, & making videos.

Clint is very laid back and enjoys his quiet evenings at home. This was far from quiet. We laughed alot and he blushed a little and we had lessons with words that neither of us understood. I found his pet bunnies, only to find out they weren’t pets :(. Yes, I shared my thoughts about that with him to which he laughed. We left him and his friends to their table of food and headed back to the Templet’s to dine with their son Kellan, his wife Amanda, Glenn’s brother & sister-in-law Corey & Bethany.Kellan, Me, Glenn, & Tim

Monday morning, we sadly packed our bags and headed back to Georgia. The entire way home we planned our next trip back to Cajun Country. While planning this trip, I had no idea that it would turn out the way it did. Not only did we experience Pierre Part to it’s fullest, we made connections with the wonderful people of this small town. We stopped in New Orleans for some beignets from Cafe Du Monde and a quick stroll around the square and ventured back home to Georgia. We will forever hold Pierre Part and those Crazy Cajuns close to our hearts. Little do they know, we’re coming back and bringing the family with us!

The big crop in that area is sugar cane. The fields along side the road were full of sugar cane. In the background, you can see the Sunshine bridge over the Mississippi River.

As we were pulling into New Orleans, we noticed men washing the Super Dome. Look closely…those little dots are men with pressure washers. I don’t think I would like that job.

This is an old building we spotted as we were headed to French Quarter.

As you may know, New Orleans is full of entertainment. Not sure who was preparing to play these, they were just sitting on the bench.
