The trip across the river takes just a few minutes. Today the view was enhanced by seeing the progress of the construction of a new bridge connecting the two sides of the river. It is said that it will be the country's longest suspension bridge. Another year will pass before it is finished and I am sad to think that the ferry will be closed when the bridge opens. After all, driving across is much faster and more convenient that the ferry, but not as much fun!
On the return trip, we missed the road to the ferry, so decided to travel the River Road aka La. 1. I felt transported to another time as my iPhone could not make a connection to the internet, so I could download a quick route back home. I decided to abandon the internet and enjoy the scenery of the levee on my left and almost ready to harvest sugar cane on my right. I knew eventually we would end up in civilization, but this day would be almost gone by then. So glad we enjoyed the bluebird day to the fullest.
