Turned out to be one of our favorite places too.
One of the most popular types of boat here is the house boat. People drive them back into the sloughs and set up house for weeks or months. They rent spots along the banks from the land owners, who often build walkways to shore along with picnic areas complete with tables, barbies and in one we saw, swings. There are also paths leading from the sloughs to nearby bars and restaurants. Some of the longer paths have benches along the way, provided by farmers, with the polite request that the walkers refrain from picking their crops.
Quite a neat way to spend a summer.
