Also take at look at New Orleans post-Katrina

Louisiana is home to bayous, crawdads, elegance and music. We visited Shreveport, Nachitoches and Lafayette as well as New Orleans. Each town is different but they are still identifiably, Louisiana.

The South shall rise again!

 

 

 

Shreveport skyline from a local park.

Joe's Crab shack - "Crabs are free tomorrow". An institution on the Shreveport riverwalk.

 

 

 BassPro - what an American institution. The complete hunting, fishing and outdoor store. They were all over the south of the States.

 Inside the store. Huge and Comprehensive.

Instore decorations were very impressive.

As were the rows and rows of weapons and ammunition!!! We Aussies were a bit 'shell-shocked'.

The Riverwalk in Shreveport

Shreveport has many Casinos - many moored in the river like this one. Apparently it had something to do with the legality of casinos on shore.

The Memorial to Policeman who have dies on duty - still in Shreveport.

Michael wandering along Front Street in Nachitoches.

Cane River Lake - don't ask why the name!!! It must be a Southern thing!

Elegant seats along the Front Street promenade of Nachitoches.

Dwyer's Cafe in Lafayette - it is very famous as a haunt of musicians.

A little ol' shack in Bayou country.

Bayou near Lafayette.

Another part of the Bayou. And, No! We didn't see any 'gators.

More of the bayou - this is not lovely green grass but a mossy top of the swamp.

This is called the Bayou Folly. A strange house set among the trees and swamp.
