The fam and I recently had an opportunity to experience the natural beauty that this area has to offer when we went on a swamp tour through Lake Martin along with some of our LCVC friends. We met at Champagnes Cajun Swamp Tours on Lake Martin (in Breaux Bridge, LA) around 5pm on the afternoon of Wednesday, September 25, and man were we in for a treat!!!!! Our tour guide Brian (from Parks, LA) entertained us with his thick Cajun accent as he skilfully maneuvered his boat through the twists and turns of the swamp for the almost 2-hour tour, sharing stories and knowledge about the area. Our 18 month-old Locke soaked up the sights and sounds of the swamp, and we even got face to face with a real alligator! (Although for some reason, Locke wasn’t that impressed with the gator!) To top it all off, we were amazed at nature’s beautify as the tour concluded with an amazing view of the sun setting over the swamp. We snapped almost 300 pictures that day. What a sight. We are so blessed to live and work in this area!
