Last Saturday, July 13th, Hurricane Barry came ashore near Marsh Island, Louisiana. Barry threatened to be a significant flood event with rainfall predicted to be over 20 inches in places. Fortunately, the weather was not as bad as expected. Here in Houma, we got less than 5 inches of rain spread out over three days, and no flooding. We did have Tropical Storm force winds Saturday morning, but there was minimal damage in Houma, a few downed trees, and some people did lose power, but nothing major. The area of the tours did receive a little more rain and Tropical Storm force winds, but again there was little impact.
So there is little or no impact on the Fall 2019 and Spring 2020 tours.
Web Site for The Atchafalaya Experience
I just finished a Web Site for my friends at the Atchafalaya Experience. Coerte and Kim have provided the boats for my Spring and Fall Tours since 2003. They are an incredible team, and I was happy to help out with the site. Many of the images on the site were taken on one of our tours. Check the website out here: www.theatchafalayaexperience.com.

Houma Louisiana Spring PhotoTour
I’ve added a tour here in the Houma, Louisiana area for March 29th - April 1st. The formal for this tour is very different than my other Spring tours. The focus will be on the attractions in the area, a plantation house, live oat trees, bayou scenes, shrimp boats, etc. We’ll also spend some time down one of the bayous in the area where we should be able to photograph pelicans and other birds, but this is not primarily a bird tour. The tour will include both shooting and post processing in my home studio. Check it out here.
