Living on the River
It's always amazing to see how others on our big planet live their lives. I was intrigued by the River community and their simplistic lifestyle. The swamp tour guide was sharing how many of the houses on the river do not have roads that get them there. They must park at the car at the docking ramps and then get on their boats to get to the houses. Isn't that interesting? Here, I just pull into my garage.
Makes going to the grocery store not seem so bad anymore.
Wildlife All Around
There is wildlife all around the Pearl River in Slidell for the River community. Can you imagine getting in your boat and having to steer around alligators?!? And the birds are beautiful, especially the hawks and Blue Herons. Also, the insects are everywhere. Dragonflies are HUGE!
