Rivers Run Deep: The Atchafalaya
The very name Atchafalaya is associated the world over with the Cajuns of its great basin. Its origins at Three Rivers is hard to define, but as it rolls past Fort DeRussy and the Simmesport Fish Market, the flavor of south Louisiana comes alive. Ride the Melville Ferry and rediscover Palmetto’s General Store, search for Cow Island, tour Breaux Bridge and St. Martinville, taste the sweets at LeJeune’s Bakery and hear Tugboat Jerry sing and carve toothpicks. Finally, watch a pirogue maker shape old wood. Savor a slice of life along one of America’s most famous and beautiful rivers.
