Lake Arthur, Louisiana – Day 2

The motorhome is parked at American Legion Post #403 in Lake Arthur, Louisiana.

We had planned to depart today…but the weather forecast is terrible…severe thunderstorms with large hail and significant risk of tornadoes.  Since we are safe here we’ve decided to stay. Then the locals keep on inviting us to see activities here, so I expect we’ll be here another two-three days.

Yesterday we drove the Bronco the about 15 miles southeast to the small town of Gueydan which claims the motto…Duck Capital of America. You can read about Gueydan by clicking this Wikipedia link…,_Louisiana

The orange top devices are the crawfish traps…


This company bought the daily production of about 1,000 pounds…

The local brochure tells us to head south on Highway 91 to see waterfowl. Here’s a link about the birds…
