We were advised that a must-see, must-do when visiting Betty's RV was a swamp tour. Champagne's swamp tours is just $20.o0 each for a two hour tour. We took our new friends Ray and Wendy to near-by Breaux Bridge, Louisiana.
The rest of this blog could just be pictures but here's just a bit. Our tour guide, a friendly young man calling himself Captain Morgan was so informative. He lives on the bayou in the neighbourhood and grew up there. The flat bottomed boat was very comfortable and very safe. As it turns out, most of the water is only a few feet deep.

Wild life is plentiful. Alligators, turtles and hundreds of birds. Captain Morgan knows all about the trees, and the vegetation in the water.
