My Cousin Darlene And The Bear

My cousin Darlene, made the news with a bear in her back yard. While her yard is about 25 miles south of the Cypress Island Swamp where I do my Louisiana swamp tours at Lake Martin,

the bear most likely came through this area on it's annual migration from north Louisiana to the Gulf coast last month.

The Louisiana Black Bear is a protected species that has now expanded in population to the point where discussion of an open hunting season is on the table.

The annual fall migration follows the Mississippi River south to the Three Rivers area, and then heads into the Atchafalaya swamp, and finally the last leg is an ancient stream bed of the Mississippi which is now a chain of lakes such as Spanish Lake near New Iberia, and Lake Martin where I do my world famous swamp tours.

A Wonderful Weekend

with temps in the 50's on Friday night, we danced at the Blue Moon Saloon without sweating...

and the next day I guided a Lake Martin Swamp Tour with temps around 80 degrees. Perfect weather!

My new friends from Austin and New York really made my weekend so special

with lots of smiles, laughter, and inspiration to celebrate life in all it's glory.

Although intelligent blondes are an oxy-moron for most people, lucky me to have 3 atomic blondes in my company, all at one time!-)

We did not get to see the Bald Eagles on any of the de la Houssaye's Swamp Tours this weekend, but I did manage to snap a pretty cool photo from 100 meters away when the pair arrived about 2 weeks ago.

Well, I have another special group coming out tomorrow morning, so...

See you later alligator!
