Westwego, LA ~ We drove to Westwego, about 20 miles away from New Orleans, for a swamp tour of Bayou Segnette. We saw all kinds of neat critters; gators, birds, and the neatest of all – a family of nutrias building a nest. The tour was relaxing and peaceful. The tour guide mentioned that he used to play in these swamps as a kid… without a boat. I’m surprised he is still alive to tell about it!
St. Ignace, MI ~ In my opinion, Michigan gets more and more beautiful the further north you go. St. Ignace is one of those northern towns. It has many beautiful attractions and is a primary port for ferries transporting people to and from Mackinac Island. This set of pictures was taken at the docks near the St. Ignace Lighthouse.
