Journey to our northern coast (in W. Monroe)
After 35 years in south Louisiana I finally traveled to the far northern limits of our coast last weekend, all the way to W. Monroe. The almost 5 hour drive from/to New Orleans with my daughter Emilie, my sister Beth and my brother-in-law Maurice Fox was interesting, e.g., who knew that north Louisiana has its own Bayou Lafourche?
In hindsight my only regret is not visiting Poverty Point but we all decided that a 32 mile side trip would stretch our combined patience.
Anyhow, after considerable debate between my id and alter ego I’m posting this announcement from the Louisiana Wildlife Federation. Congratulations to John Pitre, King Milling, the Toledo Bend Lake Association (they know how to party) and the Lafayette Junior 4H Leaders Club for their conservation awards. I thank the LWF for a great banquet and a wonderful experience. Thanks also to Karen Gautreaux and Andy Wilson, who rented a car and drove up to celebrate with us!
PS: special thanks are due to Rebecca Triche and Randy Lanctot!
