I am now in New Orleans, Louisiana visiting my great-grandmother or Grandi as we call her. This is the Riverboat Natchez on the Mississippi River in New Orleans, LA.
On the River-walk…
I noticed that the new Orleans River-walk is not where thelevee is. There were more tourists than the River-walk in Augusta and less trees. The New Orleans River-walk has less wildlife than the Augusta River-walk and is located near the French Quarter in New Orleans, LA.
LEVEE: A levee, levée, dike (or dyke), embankment, floodbank or stopbank is a natural or artificial slope or wall to regulate water levels. It is usually earthen and often parallel to the course of a river or the coast.
This is a picture of the levee leading to the river-walk in Augusta. You can see the different flood levels and the long groove down the center is where they put timbers in case it floods and they want to stop the water from damaging the city.
From the Augusta Riverwalk I could see across the Savannah River to South Carolina. I saw lots of butterflies and turtles on the Augusta River-walk including some neon butterflies that when they folded their wings they blended in.
This plaque was at the Augusta River-walk and I thought it was cool.
In my opinion, I liked the Augusta River-walk more than the New Orleans River-walk but I didn’t get to see the New Orleans River-walk at night and people say it’s really cool.
See Y’all soon!-Kai
