Wrapping up Baton Rouge...for now

We left Baton Rouge this morning in the rain....hmmmm.  It was awesome to reconnect with some relatives of mine that I have not seen in 45+ years!  Crazy!

In between visits we did get a bit more sightseeing in:

The "new" state capitol is very nice and the tallest in the country......

But I thought the old state capitol building was prettier on the outside.....
 And the inside:

 We walked along the levy next to the Mississippi River and here is a view of the Belle Casino and the I10 bridge crossing the river.

We went on a swamp tour and did not see much;) but had a great time and at least saw a gator and barred owl.  Paw Paw, our tour guide made the tour fun.  He is very Cajun;)
 We toured under the I10 and, even though the water is high, you can see where it has been much higher in past years.

 Here is our only gator sighting....

My best barred owl far;)

After the swamp tour and lunch we headed over to Bayou Tesh for a brew:
