Cocodrie is a community in southeast Louisiana, south of Houma. Down in the bayou country. It's beautiful and inhabited by good people. And, I wonder if it's there any more. I'm sure that Laura didn't do it any favors.
Thirty years ago, I had a buddy, Charlie (Cholly), who lived on Bayou DuLarge, in that area. The road in front of his house was asphalt, but just below his house, it turned into an oyster-sell road. There isn't much gravel in south Louisiana, but there is a lot of oyster shell. Down that road a bit, a big pile of oyster shell marked the end of the road. Below that was marsh, and the Gulf.
I wonder what's left down there today? My heart bleeds for south Louisiana.
