Cameron, Louisiana, temporary trailerpark

To day we witnessed for the first time the devastating effects of Hurricane Katrina. We stopped where the town of Holly Beach had been and had planed to stay the first night on the road there. Now there was nothing left but one or two trailers, slabs and light posts. Unbelievable to see how a whole community has just vanished out to see.

Postboxes at longbeach, louisiana 9 months after Hurricane Katrina

Parking lot on the beach. Once again we had witnessed the devastation of Huricane Katrina and at the million dollar beach was nothing but a bunch of postboxes set up fore those that had used to live there. A police officer we talked to the day after gave us the horrendous story of the night when Katrina hit the beach and he was out there trying to rescue things.

They found us strange those that worked at the parking lot above the harbor and conference center, but agreed to letting us stay there when we told them there was no other place to stay. All campgrounds that had not been damaged because of the flood where of course full.
