Down on the Bayou
July 7, 2011
I awoke with a heachache on what I came to believe was Thursday morning. I think both the
headache and not knowing what day of the week it is is all part of the Bourbon Street xperience. But I soon made myself well with some Community coffee and off I went.
I walked down the length of Bourbon Streetwhere everything but the souvenir shops was closed. I visited St Peter’s basilica at Jackson Square and of course I had to have some beignets and more coffee. And a praline. It seems to me that massive amounts of powdered sugar and caffeine are good hangover cures. Why else would they serve such stuff?
It was a hot day in New Orleans so it was time to head out to the swamps. I got an Enterprise car and headed back out to the swamps where I started many years ago. I went to my sister Belle (the Crab Queen) and her husband Lou’s house in Thibodaux. They were just back from Grand Isle. So we got to visit a bit before I went off to have dinner with the in-laws in Houma.
After watching ‘Swamp People’ on the History channel I finally called it a day. If you want to
see what goes on in South Louisiana watch ‘Swamp People’. There are sub titles for those of you who don’t speak Cajun.
