Thank you so much..This was taken right across Destrahan Plantation which is VERY haunted.Pirates use to come do trade in these waters where this shot was taken.Many unsavory things have taken place here..Down the road at Ormond plantation the master of the house was enjoying dinner with his family when he was suddenly called away.That was the last time anyone would ever see him again.It is assumed that the pirates took him and killed him.Ormond is also haunted.

I am wondering if anyone has thought to go over the place with a metal detector...

Don't know about that place, it is pure swamp, but there are many places that I have been to that having a metal detector would have been nice! :D

I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if you were to come up with pirate treasure aplenty.

Gold,Jewels,Coins/Money...

I found this..thought you might like to see it:

Then there is the treasure of the gentleman pirate Jean Lafitte. He was one pirate who had so much loot he could not bury it all in one spot. So he spread it around. Many are the tales of the loot of Jean Lafitte and many are the places where it is said he buried his treasure-as follows: (1) $20,000,000 on Caillou Island. (2) The Isle of Pines, where already two cannons have been found with jewels and gold hidden inside. (3) Honey Island. (4) The mouth of the Lavaca River, where the remains of Lafitte's ship, the "Pride," have been found in the river. (5) Kelso's Island. (6) Barataria Bay, where Lafitte had his headquarters for some time. (7) Pecan Island. (8) Grande-Terre, where Lafitte held auctions of his pirated ware. (9) Avoyelles Parish. (10) Last Island, where Lafitte fled during one of his many bouts with the United States Government. (11) Ruston, Louisiana. (12) Galveston Island (now the city of Galveston ). (13) A Louisiana island in Lake Bourne. (14) Cocos Island.

I wouldn't mind going on a treasure hunt for these goodies..:lol:

:wave: You are very welcome...and...I thank you for taking the time to tell me more about this area. A fascinating story and place. I'm interested in paranormal too and have experienced a few odd happenings over the years. Anyway, I am looking forward to getting back to your gallery again as soon as I catch up here. In the meantime, I shall have to curb my impatience. But again...thanks for taking the time...I appreciate it.:)
