Subject: Cajun homesteads

A national house and lifestyle magazine that I write for frequently is

Ideally, it would be near some body of water, forest, or other natural

feature associated with the family's lifestyle.

I know there are subscribers on this list who are knowledgeable about Cajun

life. Do any of you know of such a place?
