Cajun Country Swamp Tour, May 15th, 2016

Bob has been wanting to do a boat tour in a swamp for a several years, so we decided take my niece and her family to Lake Martin in a town called Breaux Bridge, and did the Cajun Country Swamp Tour.  Our tour guide knew exactly where the alligators and owls hang out, and everyone including the 6 year old and 1 year old enjoyed it.  We rode a boat for 2 hours through the cypress swamp, and saw Alligators, turtles, frogs, and many many different species of birds.DSC_0066-2 .In Louisiana, cypress trees stand in the swamp.

Anhinga. The neck is black, so I guess it is a male.
