Bayou Bienvenue

This slip flows out into the Bayou Bienvenue area in St. Bernard Parish -- east of New Olreans. You can see the shrimp boat in the center with its net up. The area of swamps, marshes and shallow lakes outside the levee system is an abundant source of shrimp and seafood.

This area along Paris Road also has an assortment of small boat repair yards. Note the house far out in the distance. It's either well built to have survived Hurricane Katrina, or its a new house.

Was it a special day for boating photos, Steve ?

I didn't post photos of boats but of ducks, which has something to do with water anyway :-))

I have always wanted to own a boat, but then my practical side (the one that would have to do the upkeep and such on it) takes over. . . . .So! I love photos of boats and docks and such. Thanks for the fix today!

Beautiful harbour photo, the water is so glassy. Here in Australia,shrimps are called prawns, and I LOVE 'em!! The boats look pretty much the same though.
