Old River Floating Camps 

May 18, 2015

Here , for centuries in this lowest looking place . Fisherman have been enjoying the bounties of Old River , in Louisiana . 

On the way to Grandmaw Joys wake yesterday  and funeral today . We drove around looking at the fishing camps . You will see styrofoam underneath and for obvious reason, because  Old River is connected to the Mississippi River whose water levels change enormously with the seasons and weather. When the water goes up the camps float up and the polls keep them from floating away.   Some camps are fixed on stilts .

 I saw a four story camp on the skinniest rotting stilts! Scary ! 

Here are photos . This River is beautiful from a boat ! We were just near the few camps that are there .  And in the photo that looks like a bayou . If you look really hard you will see a little gator sitting on a log . 

Enjoy!  the Deep South as you will never see in an issue of the Southern Living Magazine .
