Champagne Cajun Swamp tour,Breaux Bridge LA

Cajun swamp tour, rated number one on Trip Advisor, all it didn't disappoint. We visited this tour from Poches RV Park

A big cypress tree, very old

a cypress forest

Its not that we are unfamiliar with alligators, we live on a lake, but with small gators. The big ones are removed, now I know were they may be.

Acres of water Lilly pads and many in bloom

I would be careful of picking flower here with all the gators
This is a huge blue heron

Another huge white heron
See the reflection
A large turtle

Keeping cool or hunting

I see you!

Another tour boat

Keep out if my space

Just neat and different

Ready to strike


Black Crowned Night Heron, I believe that's his name

Sorry for all the pictures, but it was hard to choose from all the pictures we took. It was a fun and wonderful tour. Thanks for following along. We did this tour in May

A dog named Lilly

     We took a swamp tour with Champagne’s Cajun Swamp Tours. A super tour that had Linda taking hundreds of photos.   But first, a  dog named Lilly that acted just like our beloved lilly that we lost several years ago. We offered to take lilly home with us, but they had an attachment  to her like we had with our lilly.  We thought she was our lilly incarnated. But on with the tour, even if we had tears in our eyes. Other pet lovers know what we mean.

Tour in our next blog update

Poches RV Park, Breaux Bridge LA, and Poche market and restaurant

Trying to catch up on our 2016 western tour. We are only several months behind.  We are 113 days into our trip.
     Picking up where we left off. After leaving Abita Springs we traveled a short distance to Breaux Bridge LA to one of our favorite campgrounds. That would be Poches RV Park. While there we visited several great LA restaurants.  One, our number one was Poche Market and Restaurant. It was super and the reason why it is rated number one on Trip Advisor. We also visited several other cities from here and other attractions plus other eateries which we will list in a follow up blog.

Poches RV Park

We really enjoy this park. Fishing at the back of your site. Passport America Sunday to Thursday  then Good Sam the rest of the week. There are about 5 or 6 large stocked ponds with great fishing. The roads have been paved since we were here last. Sites are full hook up with 30/50 amp electric. Back in cement pad.  2 or 3 pull thrus sites. There is a small pool. There is a small clean laundry. Clean restrooms and showers. Few OTA TV channels. Great people work at the check in. Over all the park is very clean and well kept. The only thing missing is cable TV. The park is nice and quiet. There is shopping near by.  The roads getting to the park were really bad coming from I10, I mean very very bad. This should not detract from the park rating. The lady in the office told us about an easy way to get to I49 and the roads were much much better.
