The day finally arrived that we had to pack up and leave our friends in Louisiana. We have had such a nice time with them, although oppressively hot. But what do you expect in Texas and Louisiana in August?
We went out to eat a couple of times, once to Pat's of Henderson, a very good Cajun restaurant with a nice view of the river and gators swimming by, and the second at Poche's Restaurant and Market in Breaux Bridge. Poche's is also owned by Ornell's uncle who formerly owned the RV park where we are staying. The food here in Louisiana is fabulous! If you've never been, you owe it to yourself to make this trip. I like this area much better than New Orleans. It is much less crowded here and Way less touristy!
We were up and going around 7 this morning, but since we have about 225 miles to go, with most of it on freeway, we were able to take it easy. Bill and David, however, had mowing and chores to do when they got home and with a tropical storm brewing in the Gulf, they wanted to get things finished before the rains came. Just another reason to love our full-time lifestyle!
As soon as we hit the road, we ran into those darn love bugs. You can see the results below. I took a picture of the windshield, which was also covered, but they had been washed off several times so that I could see to drive and most of the bugs were gone.
I thought about counting them but you might find the number of the pesky little bugs astounding. I will take on the clean up as soon as I can.
Now that we're here in Center, it's time to spend time with family.
