Pictures of My Bayou

This page is intended to show the beauty of the Bayou Liberty area in which we live.

Only thirty minutes from the hustle and bustle of New Orleans, outside of Slidell proper is Bayou Liberty.

The land is rife with live oaks and beautiful waterways.


The Times Pic featured a short video with interviews of the Bayou Liberty Pirogue Races participants.
Here is the link

In the background you can hear the squealing of the Bayou Liberty Bridge as cars cross the bayou.


This is one of my favorite sounds of this area.

The sights, sounds and smells of the bayou is what has kept me living in this area for 20+ years.


as of March 2007, many boats are still orphans due to katrina. Click here for the documentary.

I have lived in this area for over twenty years.

I hope to never leave the peace and beauty of Bayou Liberty.


Speaking of Hell, this area went thru Hell AND High Water as a result Of Hurricane Katrina in August of 2005. As of June 2006,the area is still trying to come back. 50% of the houses are still empty. FEMA trailers are everywhere. A LOT of the beautiful trees are gone. I have documented the losses from the surrounding area here.
Here are some recent pictures (August 06) along Bayou Liberty.








This Vet's office just reopened!


The old catfish that stood over Kellys Katfish Korner made it through Katrina's winds and floods.
