"The Traveling Cajun" RVRoller's Profile

Louisiana-A Bygone Era

Beyond the murky Gulf waters, swamps and alligators, lies a lazy meandering road know as “The River Road.” Strewn with every type of home from modern to beyond the poverty point you become aware of magic in the air. Your excitement is doubled by the dark storm clouds hanging in the sky. Endlessly, the road goes on as you follow hoping there will be a safe refuge from the storm. Then, in the distance you see the huge oak trees. At last, the long get away you have been saving for is here. One of the little cottages on the property will be your home for a week. With that thought, you check in melting into history on the property known as “The Grand Damn of the River Road.” or Oak Ally. You will dine on Cajun/Creole food and leave with a few souvenirs from the gift shop. All in all, even seasoned visitors to this 1839 French Creole sugar plantation will re-experience the command these old manors demand. And yes…Oak Ally is reportedly a haunted antebellum home.
