Vermilionville and Lake Martin

Nesting Great Egrets

Little alligator

Cajun home from 1790

There are some turtles on this log


We went to the another National Park Acadian Cultural Center today. Next door to it was a place called Vermilionville with recreated or actual old Acadian (Cajun) houses. The also had a blacksmith demonstration, basket weaving, and an old fiddle player. It was very interesting.

A person in the Cultural Center recommended that we go out to Lake Martin which has a bird refuge on part of it. It has a huge rookery were all sorts of wading birds come to nest. There were also turtles and alligators. We saw great egrets and little blue herons. I'm not sure what all was there. It was great.

Unfortunately, no Cajun food. We decided to save our pennies for all of the activities in Eunice over the weekend.
