Whirlpool

A couple of weeks ago, my brother had his wedding in on the beautiful Jefferson Island (which isn’t really an island) just outside of New Iberia, LA. The Gardens were absolutely gorgeous. And the sunset on Lake Peigneur couldn’t have provided a better setting for such a celebration.

A good portion of the night I sat on the lawn, watching the sunset with my Beam & Coke and some good company. I had an interesting talk with some locals about the incredible history of the lake in front of us and that day in 1980 in which it had a fast-moving whirlpool a quarter of a mile in diameter swallowing everything around it.

  1. It’s pretty amazing isn’t it. I’m not a history buff but when I looked into this I thought it was really cool and worth posting. The video explained the events much more accurately than the drunk coonass that was sitting next to me at the wedding.
