In memory of Curious and everyone who is waiting on the other side...

A cat continues the feline tradition of associating with sailors - The Port of New Orleans

We were packing to move and this worried little lady parked herself in the middle of the Captain Easy lifering. She wasn't happy about what was going on around her, but she did love her big beautiful screened in porch once we got there.

/Spouse grew up in NOLA.
//Don't feel bad for Miss Kitty, she treated her driver to 16.5 hours of feline screaming. She did take occasional breaks so the other two screamers could get in a scream or three. Surprisingly, everyone was as quiet as church mice when visibility ended at the front bumper bc of fog or rain. Fun times!
///Gumbo, unholy trinity of hodgepodgery.

While I found this Tricolored Heron at Disney World, their coastal habitat runs from North Carolina to Mexico - with a concentration in the wetlands of Louisiana.

Getting to NOLA is still on my bucket list, but one of my favorite musical artists hails from there. A couple years ago I was delighted to find his 1995 first album at a Goodwill Store in central Indiana. I'll put on some Blues in remembrance of Curious.

Oregon has crayfish, if the gulls don't steal them first.

And bullfrogs, which are native to Louisiana but invasive here.

LA is the Pelican State.   These pelicans are from CA.

Outside of my hometown of Ferriday, La...this was a bar when I was younger.

I never knew Curious well, but a light has gone out in the world and we are all the poorer for it.  Rest in Peace and I'll be posting three photos of egrets in the hopes that we'll have all the egrets here, so he'll have 'no egrets' in the afterlife.

1/3 A young reddish egret doing his characteristic dance on the bayou coastal lagoon.  According to my research reddish egrets are fairly common along the Louisiana coast.  They are rare 'vagrants' up here where I am and I was lucky to catch this one way on the edge of what would be his normal territory.

2/3 A great shot of a great egret at a great distance in a great amount of rushes at the marshy (bayou-y?) end of a local lake.

3/3 - Great blue heron standing all Edgar Allen Poe-like on a dead tree limb.  Not an egret, but a close cousin.  Here's hoping Curios has left all his 'egrets 'n the heron, now'.
