Cajun Swamp Chicken

The Cypress tree tunnel is a dirt road, where the trees on each side form a continuous overhead canopy, giving the illusion of it being a tunnel.  It is a glorious place for photographers to go and take pictures, but because these trees grow best in swampy, wet soil, an alligator took over this tunnel and claimed it as his territory.  The good news is that the gator was captured today and tonight there will be a barbecue.  The chef will be serving Cajun Crawfish Twice Baked Stuffed Potatoes along with some Cajun Cornbread Dressing.  We have utensils, but you will need to bring your own drinks.  The bluegrass-country singer Alison Krauss will be bringing her fiddle and it should turn out to be a real hootnanny.  The ducks have come back now that the gator is gone, but don’t try to eat them, as they are pets.

    1. Thanks Sadje. An alligator was captured in a pond that is part of the community that I live in and that had been spotted a few months ago. They hired a tracker to capture it and that was in the back of my mind when I started writing this. There was no barbecue here, I embellished that part of the story and I think it was released someplace where there are less people.

    1. Thanks Neel. KL mentioned the ducks being at the end of the tunnel in her description of the picture, so I knew that I had to fit them in the story someplace.
