It would appear that it is monsoon season in Louisiana, at least to judge from our 3 day stay. It rained on us the entire way over there, all 8 hours. It rained most, if not all, of every day we were there. Then, as if by magic, literally the minute we crossed the border back into Texas, the sky cleared, the sun came out, and there was not a cloud to be seen in the blue. It just confirmed our high opinion Texas.
We had a blast. Ken gained 10 pounds. I don’t know what I gained. My clothes still fit; that’s all I care about. We ate crawfish, oysters, shrimp, bread puddings, gumbos, etouffes, jambalayas, andouilles, crab, fried green tomatoes. In short, we feasted on food as only Cajuns know how to cook it. And that’s a lovely thing. We did get to do quite a bit of sightseeing, in spite of the rain. We heard people talking with their lovely Cajun accents, with the lilt and the “dis” and “dat”. We had a blast.
To save time & energy, I put the photos on Ken’s web page. Go take a look at Ken Can to check out the pictures.
