Lousiana - Thibodaux Cajun Music

Tribodauxville is a small village that was at the intersection of two main Bayous - Bayou Lafourche and Bayou Terrebone. Bayou Lafourche was a major canal used for shipping Sugar Cane from the plantations in Louisiana and there were high banks in the area. That made it an idea place for a small town that supported the sugar industry. Cajun bayou people would converge on Tribodauxville to partake in song and to get their dance on. [More]

Lousiana - Mandalay National Wildlife Refuge

We saw quite a few neat birds while we were out. The most interesting for me were the Bald Headed Eagles. Bald Headed Eagles migrate here in January to mate. Actually, since Eagles mate for life, they bring their mate with them. The eggs hatch in March and in May they head back up North, to as far away as the Arctic circle. Eagles always use the same nest every year, so this is like their winter home. [More]
