I watched the sun come up over St. Mary Parish as I drove down I - 49 headed towards Cut Off. K-bon cajun radio played all my favorites starting with Jerry Lee Lewis and filled in with Bozoo Chavez, Roy Oberson, and Fats Domino. As I drove I wondered if the butterfly shrimp boats would be trolling down Bayou LaFourche. It's such a beautiful site watching the boat cut throught the coffee colored water. It makes me think of my first cup of coffee this morining. The artist in me noticed how the marsh grasses give off a golden glow in the morining light and the colorful boats parked along the bayou come in every shape, size and color. I think my favorites are the oyster boats. Their odd shapes are built for exactly what they are suppose to do transport raked oyster from the gulf and get them ready for half shell orders in the oyster bars of New Orleans. My exit is Hwy. 1 and it takes me down to Golden Meadows and travels on to the Grand Island. I keep hearing how the island is about to fall into the gulf but I find it still holding on. Highway 1 is the main line for all of the oil company trucks delivering supplies to the boats that go out to the oil rigs. Its such a pity I get so motion sick because I would love to take a ride out into that green gulf water.
