Fort Proctor (Beauregard)  (I believe that is Shell Beach in the upper right of the photo and Old Shell Beach immediately behind the fort.) It is north of Shell Beach on Lake Borgne ( 1850-1874). The fort was never completed because of hurricane damage and the start of the Civil War. It is just west of the mouth of Bayou Yscloskey. It is one of a kind from that era because they used structural iron to help with the support of the walls. The fort was built on land to guard one of the west approaches to New Orleans but is now completely surrounded by water accessible only by boat. More pictures of Fort Proctor.

Mississippi River Gulf Outlet (MRGO) opened in 1965 - Originally about 400 feet wide, it is now 1600-2000 feet wide. Katrina's surge came through MRGO to inundate the Lower 9th Ward, St. Bernard parish (Arabi, Chalmette) and New Orleans East. Look it up on the web, there is more than enough information. It is supposed to be a ship channel for deep draft ocean going ships but VERY few ships use it. Not only does it allow water to go out into the gulf of Mexico, but it allows salt water to intrude far into the state.
MRGO - Some of the repairwork being done to bring the MRGO levee up to its pre-Katrina elevation.  At this location, clay soils are being offloaded from barges.
If you look carefully, there is a pipeline that used to go over a levee. The levee along this part of MRGO is gone.
