Lafayette: Petit Bayou in Vermilionville


Petit Bayou, Vermilionville, Lafayette, Louisiana. August 2015.


The other day, I took a beginner's class in kayaking.

We kayak babies twirled and splashed about in a large bathtub, so as not to be a danger to ourselves or others, said bathtub being Vermilionville's Petit Bayou.

Kayaking or canoeing in Louisiana is a meditative experience. The water is slow. Small life forms glide and hop and hover and zoom just above and below the surface.

It is nice to sit still in your vessel and look deep into the dark water to watch the movement of life.
