Turtle Landing is close enough to Louisiana to warrant inclusion in our Louisiana Daily Photo feature. It’s just a little piece down the road from the Rigolets and is right on the Mississippi border.
It’s far enough from puritan New Orleans to have just the right amount of joie de vivre.
Walk into the crowded barroom filled with thick plumes of cigarette smoke, buy a dollar fifty longneck then head out back to a capacious deck filled with a multitude of ramshackle furniture and walls adorned with outsider art.
Hungry? Order a bacon cheeseburger or a soft shell crab po boy and eat on the dock that juts out into a bayou. You will see alligators swimming past and a bartender may come out and ask if you need another dirt cheap, ice cold beer.
