Kayaking the Basin

2020/11/29

In this week's video, we took our kayaks for a little paddle on Bayou Fuselier in the Atchafalaya Basin on Thanksgiving. No turkey or alligator sightings but we did see lots of water fowl including ibis and even a belted kingfisher. It was the first time we took our kayaks out with the truck and it was a total game changer! We got a little rain but had lots of laughs as we paddled this 7 mile loop in the swamp. The Atchafalaya Basin is the largest wetland and swamp in the United States and is located in south central Louisiana.
