My (Donna's) turn to update the blog today. We had a fun morning touring the bayou in an airboat. Tim had a great time sitting up by the guide. We saw alligators (of course), turtles, fish, blue heron, egrets, and another type of bird that was black with an orange beak. I was so wishing I had the bird expert (Ruth Toms) with me to help me know the type of bird I was seeing. It was fun holding the alligators, but I did not wish to touch or get near the swamp rat that our guide had for us to see! We left the bayou and drove to Baton Rouge where we toured the Rural Life Museum at the Louisiana State University. We are now spending the night in Lake Charles, Louisiana and will be leaving tomorrow morning to head for Houston! Carol: I thought the same thing about the Domino sugar factory! Karen: Tim does most of the photography, but I help out some. Love to hear from you; keep the comments and questions coming!
