My buddy Jim McDonnel took his circa 1971 John boat up Cedar Bayou today, launching from the boat dock at Roseland Park. We motored all the way to the I-10 bridges, occasionally bumping an underwater log as we neared the bridges. We saw many different birds, including great blue herons, night herons, white egrets, caracara, anhinga, cormorants, kingfishers, and vultures.
We also found about 5-6 boats completely destroyed. I wonder who is responsible for their removal?
We discovered Cedar Bayou for the most part is unspoiled and beautiful. It will be a real shame to see it ruined by the noise and traffic pollution caused by the proposed barge terminal.
