Haha, nice presentation. ;)

That's really neat-looking. I love how the sidewalk goes right into the water.

Thanks! I originally posted just the bottom picture in my journal, and all my friends were like "What is that?!"

The sidewalk doesn't really go anywhere in the other direction, either. :)

By the way, that is supposed to be a street, not a bayou. It just floods in the rain.

I figured. Most people don't have their driveways leading into a bayou. ;)

These folks need a "frog car"

Nice pic.
Gee, any surprise the houses are on supports above ground level?
That's what happens when you live below sea level.

Re: These folks need a "frog car"

I think Baton Rouge is above sea level, but it's still real flat with alluvial soils, so flooding and subsidence can be a real problem. This pic shows the flooding after just a normal afternoon thunderstorm, so the houses up on blocks have a huge advantage during serious tropical weather.
