Duck Hunters – Myers Landing, La.- BOOM! BOOM BANG BANG BOOM! WHAMALANGABANGBANG! It’s duck season! I gather the plan is that you blow ’em out of the sky when they’re landing for the night. Sorta like what you did at that singles bar last night. I’ve seen a lot of pickups, a lot of guys in camo drawers and precious few ducks. In fact I personally haven’t yet seen a duck that doesn’t have a “Made in China” stamp. Tonights’s forecast is for 30 kts+ and nicely cold. But the knights continue jousting.
Myers Landing, Lowry, La. – There’s zydeco to the right of me, zydeco to the left of me, big diesels in front and little diesels out back. We have found Cajun country. Actually we’re as south in Cajun country as we can go without a pirogue. Or an oil barge.
Myers landing is simply a boat ramp, store and campground…until the weekend. Mom just went out to meet the neighbors and reports that the guy next door said “We got a Florida cracker here!”
The big diesels are the tows going down the Mermentau River; the little diesels are the myriad pickup trucks that belong to the duck hunters and river shrimpers.
The campground, amorphous as it may be, has absolutely filled up. People stand around fires in their camo woolies denying that they’re freezing.
This is, friends, the heart of Cajun country. It’s not what the Travel Channel or the Food Network or Discovery says. It just is.

Bay Breeze RV on the Bay is one of only two RV parks right on the eastern shore of south Mobile Bay and the view is wonderful.
Most of the FHU sites have a least a view of the bay and two are waterfront and all have a concrete patio and a picnic table.There’s plenty of shade but that means your satellite tv may not work; our portable dish worked more-or-less at the very corner of site 11. Also available is a bathhouse and laundry room and free wi-fi that works well.
Everyone was very friendly and spotters spring into action the help campers get into or out of the back-in sites.
Payment is by cash or check, and no refunds are given for cancellation; a credit is given.
Bay Breeze is about six and a half miles down West Fort Morgan Road (Hwy 180). Look for the sign and the flags.
