Buena Vista is the area you are talking about. My brother lives there. I've gone under that bridge many times with him. He fishes that area quite a bit. He bought a bigger fishing
boat and now can't get under the bridge in a high tide without taking down some structure over the helm
. His new boat has scars from hitting the pylons.
I started from Buena Vista when I made the kiting trek through that channel at Tiki Island.
I really love that area. Good fishing
, good restaurants, good kiting...
I've thought about keeping my boat in Kema when making final preparations for my sailing quest. But have since opted against it. I plan to stay in New Orleans
or Mobile before leaving the US.
