Charles says he is thrilled with the layout and he hopes people will enjoy paddling some of these lovely waterways and seeing the amazing wildlife first hand.
“My wife and I enjoy kayaking very much. It feels magical to quietly glide between the swamp cypresses and tupelos exploring Louisiana’s bayous at your own pace. These landscapes are really very special because the plants and wildlife are all adapted to life with varying levels of water. Each area has its own charm and resident wildlife population, then you’ve got migrants passing through, and different water levels, so it is similar but different every time you visit. The bird song alone is highly invigorating, you can see birds and animals from the water that wouldn’t tolerate your approach on land. Keep your eyes open and look all around, keep looking ahead about 60 yrds to see what your approaching.”
