Scenes from the Swamp – Breaux Bridge/Lake Martin Louisiana


Swamp tour guide extraordinaire, Norbert LeBlanc on Lake Martin, La. Oct. 2012

A week ago I was cruising slowly through a swamp with two friends from England, a young Morrocan-born woman living in Paris and a gregarious alligator hunter/swamp tour operator named Norbert LeBlanc. I highly recommend his swamp tour – which lasted about two hours and cost a very reasonable $20 per person. Here’s Norbert giving his tour in french (ours was mostly English); http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E-e4t3ArJDA

Here’s some more scenes:

The view from the boat: cypress and tupelo gum trees dripping with spanish moss, alligators and turtles lounging on logs in the water, elegant blue herons and white egrets
