After eating at NOLA and exploring a bit, we headed to the swamp for an airboat adventure. The company's shack was straight out of The Waterboy.
These critters were in a pool in the back of the shack.
We waited on the dock for the airboats to come back from their last tour.
These drunk guys were having a bachelor party weekend and happened to be from Los Angeles, too. One dude was the brother of Dodger occasional third baseman and pinch-hitter Mark Loretta. They got their little hats at a gas station. To say the least, they made our boat ride rather amusing.
Our guide tossed marshmallows into the water to attract alligators.
See ya later, alligator.
