Servitude, in Anglo-American property law a device that ties rights and obligations to ownership or possession of land so that they run with the land to successive owners and occupiers.
In contemporary property law, servitudes allow people to create stable long-term arrangements for a wide variety of purposes, including shared land uses; maintaining the character of a residential neighbourhood, commercial development, or historic property; and financing infrastructure and common facilities. The owner of property burdened by a servitude cannot unilaterally terminate the servitude or transfer the property free from the servitude without the consent of all the beneficiaries. Thus, whether or not they expressly agree to its terms, subsequent owners and occupiers are bound to follow the servitude. Land-use arrangements implemented by servitudes range from simple driveway easements and covenants prohibition nonresidential use of subdivision lots to complex declarations that provide for the physical and governmental infrastructure for , condominiums planned developments, or private towns.
Cajun Country Swamp Tours
Cajun Country Swamp Tours, owner, Walter “Butch” Guchereau, grew up on a small Cajun farm located on the banks of the Bayou Teche in Breaux Bridge, La. where he still resides today. From early on his father introduced him to the swamps of Cajun Country which he fell in love with. By hunting, sport and commercial fishing and just plain exploring he came to know the swamps like his own backyard. Butch put himself through college by working summers on dredge boats located in Louisiana on the Mississippi and Atchafalaya River systems where he experienced the dynamic forces that have built the land of Acadiana over the last 25,000 years. He learned how the rivers, bayous, wetland areas, man’s interventions and coastal erosion are all intertwined and constantly changing.
The countless enjoyable hours he has spent in the swamplands of Cajun Country coupled with college degrees in Zoology and Botany has given Butch a rich insight into the ecology of Louisiana swamps. Interlaced with natural history he relates how the ever resourceful Acadians developed the Cajun Culture around the swamp ecosystem of Cajun Country.
Your swamp tour is taken personally by Cajun Country Swamp Tours because we know that for many of you this maybe your only trip to Cajun Country and it is important to us that everyone’s swamp tour in Cajun Country is both pleasurable and memorable. Swamp ecotours are taken by appointment and we try to schedule the swamp tours in such a manner as not to rush your experience. My swamp tour boats can accommodate groups of 2 to 48 people. Arrangements for larger groups can be made.
The swamp tour boat, which is an open Cajun crawfish skiff, is powered by an extremely quiet, environmentally friendly, 4-stroke outboard motor. The water intake of this outboard motor has been fixed so that shallow water muck and thick vegetation are not a problem. This very quiet motor, the small groups of guest and the relatively small size of the swamp tour boat allows for some great wildlife viewing.
My son, Shawn, and I have spent most of our lives either learning about or earning an income from the swamps of Cajun Country – this is where we want to be. The swamps are our passion and Joie de Vivre (Joy of Life), and sharing a few hours with people who love and enjoy nature and the great outdoors is an enjoyable experience for us. Our personal experiences and observations along with my educational background enables us to give you an insightful eco-journey into the swamplands of Acadiana that is educational, enjoyable and entertaining; and just maybe with a serving of Cajun Hospitality this will not be your only trip to Cajun Country.
