GO COAST EPISODE 11: TERREBONNE PARISH
Exploring Terrebonne Parish, Go Coast’s host Tom Gregory discovers it’s easy to pass a good time with the good people of this area named “the good earth”. During his journey through Louisiana’s Bayou Country, Tom calls alligators with Captain Ron “Black” Guidry of A Cajun Man’s Swamp Tour. At the Jolly Inn in Houma, he ventures onto the dance floor and experiences some true Cajun hospitality. There is also a stop at one Houma’s newest hot spots, Vino!
On his visit to the Regional Military Museum in Houma for a history lesson on World War II, the host grabs the wheel of both a M-113 Armored Personnel Carrier and a LCVP Boat. At Southdown Plantation, Tom takes the seat of power—if only for a minute—at the desk of Senator Allen J. Ellender. His tour also includes the Bayou Terrebonne Waterlife Museum and the Chauvin Sculpture Garden, that is the home of hauntingly emotive art of Kenny Hill, who disappeared in 2000.
Also in this episode, the host goes 30 miles off shore to do some deepwater fishing with Captain Lee Schouest of CoCo Marina. The results may change fishing forever. The episode is a perfect travel guide for your own adventures through Louisiana’s Bayou Country.
