Arrive in Louisiana!

It's Sunday afternoon, and as we approach the Scott exit (just outside of Lafayette) the rig is magically drawn off I-10 to the north for a quick stop at Best Stop.  Anyone living in Louisiana will tell you that their smoked Boudin, and fresh Cajun sausage is absolutely ranked No. 1 in the State!  A few pounds of each should get us off to a good start on sampling once again that wonderful Cajun cooking.

It's not too much longer before we arrive at our first destination, Angelle's Whiskey River Bar.  This place has been around for many a year, and is noted for it's rockin' Cajun & Zydeco music starting at 4pm every Sunday afternoon! 

As the cars keep rolling in over the top of the levee, we enjoy the beautiful view of the Henderson Swamp behind-

Folks step up to the forty-some year old bar as Geno Delafose and French Rockin' Boogie take the stage!

Within minutes, the floor is moving to the beat of that great Zydeco!  Hey, WE'RE IN LOUISIANA NOW!
