Southwest Louisiana Convention & Visitors Bureau: Stop #2 & Gator on the Geaux “Clotile”  0

SWLA CVB Stop #2 & Our 4th Gator on the Geaux: Clotile | bonveillercher.com

We were super excited to find the beautiful Clotile inside the Southwest Louisiana Convention & Visitors Bureau! As our fourth Gator on the Geaux to feature, Clotile is definitely a Lake Charles treasure. The people of SWLA even had a hand in naming her, and I love that they chose a Cajun name!

We were also lucky enough to have the always helpful Ms. Lynn Bass to take our pictures with Clotile. Be sure to ask for her when you go!

Stop #3 will be coming soon, and I have a feeling there are more gators hiding out around the SWLA CVB!

Welcome to Bon veiller, cher! A blog that journeys through the state of Louisiana in search of what makes it unique, fun, and a great place to live and visit. -- bonveillercher.blogspot.comHi y’all! Welcome to Bon veiller, cher and our very first post! We are Katrina and Lexi, a mother-daughter team living in small-town Southwest Louisiana. We have always had a very special bond and shared a great love for our home state, and now that we are both adults, we find ourselves yearning for more knowledge about the places and people around us. Plus, we both spent twenty years living in another state, and this only further fueled our passion for Louisiana. When the idea of a blog first came about, we knew we wanted to focus not only on the state as it is now but on the rich history and the people that have shaped it. From festivals and foods to traditions and trades, we will be sitting down to visit with locals from all around to delve deeper into what makes the culture here so unique. So many people look to other places for fun and adventure, but we want to show you that no matter where you live, you can find these things just steps outside your front door.
