We grabbed the leftover crawfish tails and some Louisiana Strawberries for breakfast as we headed out the door
for a day of exploring.
The backroads from Berwick to Breaux Bridge (Bro Bridge) are advertised as being a scenic route. And we passed many beautiful antebellum (that means pre-civil war) homes - but the man doesn't stop for his lady to take pictures, This was a picture of something I thought was beautiful!
But I did manage to get a few good pictures at stop lights:
...and through the windshield
As we were driving along, we talked about building a new house - a shop building with a kitchen, bedroom, and bath with a jacuzzi tub, and a place to park the rv. Then we passed our dream house (and this time the man stopped for a picture):
We strolled the sidewalks of old Breaux Bridge, shopped antique stores and an ate at a wonderful french cajun cafe - Cafe Des Amis. They tickled our taste buds with gumbo, turtle soup, shrimp & grits, and white chocolate bread pudding. So far - it's won our vote for best in Louisiana.
From there we headed south to see what the
Gulf of Mexico looks like in La.
We didn't seen any oil spill, but did see a lot of debris from the sugar cane harvest.
Here's a great boat in the bayou view from a bridge.
(While driving, of course!)
The smoke in the background is burning sugar cane fields.
But the highlight of the day must have been getting to see Louisiana Black Bear
and of course, we stopped for pictures!
It was a great day!
