We're here! But it took us a while to get here. First a flight to Lake Charles, LA. Then a three and half hour drive to NOLA. That's OK, really it is because we got a chance to see Louisiana in a way we wouldn't have otherwise. Cajun Tails for lunch in Welsh, LA where the food was fried and the tea was sweet. I had catfish for the first time and wondered where it had been all my life.
It's cold here in LA and I'm so not prepared for this. Silly me. But that's not going to stop me. I'll just have to fill myself with hot gumbo.
We crossed the Mississippi who I expected to be larger and maybe she was, but I didn't notice.
Much of Hwy 10 to neworleans was on bridges, not like this one below, rather hard for me to describe right, I'll just have to settle for saying it was fairly cool.
Oh but the food in neworleans. First I'm writing it as one word because I was told to pronounce it as one word. Next I have to say that when we first got here, I regretted our decision. I was cold, I wasn't sure if this was the city for us, then we walked two blocks and found a place that served me this:
Then we walked a few more blocks and we saw this, but not after the awesome impromptu band outside in the cold.
And I was transported back to twenty years ago when we were first married and doing all these things and living like it was all going to last forever. And even if it didn't last forever, I realized we found the one and only place were could relive this part of our lives.
And I was so very happy even if I was shivering, but very very happy to be alive and married to the very best man in this world, the perfect one for me.
