We decided to visit the Swamp and Bayou on one of Champagne’s swamp tours. This was an excellent 2 hour boat ride through both Swamp and Bayou looking at the scenery and wildlife.

A Bayou is a very slow moving stream often with big wide open spaces lined with vegetation. A Swamp is a dense boggy wetland where the water seems to stand still… often Bayous feed swamps in Cajun Country which is how we got to experience both on this one tour.

This place is amazing and the boat ride extremely relaxing… bet thing was not mosquitoes at all. apparently there is a type of tree in the swap that they don’t like the scent of and so stay away.

We got to see alligators, turtles, ducks, ducks being chased by alligators and an owl.
