its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

Oct. 27 - Morgan City, LA

City Dock
Miles to Rockport, TX - 430

“For one minute, walk outside, stand there in silence. Look up at the sky and contemplate how amazing life is.” – Author Unknown

We left Houma later than normal since we were just going 38 miles today. At one time we considered that a good days travel, but in that past few years we've gotten use to longer days. We had a chance to visit this morning with Kathy and Terry off of Green Door again and enjoy our coffee as we waited for the fog to lift. The scenery today changed from swamps to woods and was a lot less industrial. It was a beautiful remote area of Louisiana and we spotted 20 eagles along the way...a new personal record for us. Today was a great day for pictures, so I'll let them show the rest of our day.

A picture of the City Dock in Houma. It's located between two bridges along a nice park. Right off the ICW.
Just a few pictures of the 20 eagles we saw today. Most were in pairs and some were juveniles. So amazing. 
I guess they don't want you to get lost in the bayous
The ICW in Louisiana is lined with shipyards...so many shipyards. Building ships, tugs and barges of all sizes. Some of them dismantle old barges and ships and some....
build casinos on barges
and others build oil platforms
One of the different looking ships we saw today...look close...very close.
This guy was working over the edge while they were cruising along. No reason to waste time in any of these shipyards!
Southwest Reef Lighthouse located in Berwick across the Atchafalaya River from us.
