(Day 10 - #BlueBayou)

It‘s not blue—but this is my own private bayou, just outside the gate of my backyard. It‘s called Bayou Tarkiln. I tagged James Lee Burke‘s book for two reasons: He is from Louisiana, and like me, has seen his fair share of bayous; and this particular novel has Dave Robicheaux trying to solve the mystery of a dead body found in a bayou. That‘s blue enough, I think....

KathyWheeler I went to New Iberia for a gumbo festival and saw Victor‘s with its “Dave Robicheaux eats here” sign. Someday, I will go back during a less busy time and actually eat there. 😊 9mo

KathyWheeler @gradcat I was visiting a friend in Lafayette; I used to live in Pineville. Now I‘m in Alabama. 9mo
Lizpixie I‘d have loved to visit your home state one day👍❤️ 9mo
gradcat @Lizpixie I so wish you could—right now—I‘d love it! 🥰 9mo
gradcat @KathyWheeler I certainly know where Pineville is...I had a good friend in college that was from there. I‘m going to ask what is probably a stupid question, but here goes: Do you like it better where you are now? 9mo
andrew61 Great image. 9mo
KathyWheeler @gradcat You would think I would because I love the ocean and I‘m closer to that, but there was something about Louisiana that made me feel that I was finally home. So I miss it. 9mo
gradcat @andrew61 Thank you! 🙏 9mo
gradcat @KathyWheeler There is something about Louisiana that gets in the very soul of a person...I was born here, and although I don‘t love where I live now, I really appreciate the people...and the tenor of the place. 9mo
KathyWheeler @gradcat My mom was French Canadian from Nova Scotia; I look a lot like her. When I lived there, people always thought I was Cajun and that they knew me from somewhere. 9mo
gradcat @KathyWheeler Why does that sound like my cousins in south Louisiana? They always think all the Cajuns must be their kin! 😂😂 9mo
