or maybe I should call this “windy saturday 2,” because as I watched the merciless wind from a shelter on the “cliff,” Kyle Stubbs felt it from the water. All fotos today come thanks to his efforts. Merci merci.
And these first two fotos, perfectly complement (as in andouille to crawfish-boil) Bowsprite’s recent Jumbolaya post here. It’s the dredge Atchafalaya, named for the great Cajun river and region. (Treat yourself to the 7.5-minute video at that link: great cuisine, music, accents, and swampscapes .)
My parting question: which company now operates Atchafalaya? Or . . is that a Crowley “C” on the stack?
And with all these Cajun and pre-Mardi Gras references, check out the blog of a local Brasilian Carnival expert here. Laissez les bons temps rouler. And for the young at heart, watch Robert J. Flaherty’s Louisana Story here, for authentic life in Atchafalaya Country.
