We had a long travel day today, so we decided to get an early start. We left our hotel at 7:30 AM and 82 degrees with clear skies and headed for Lafayette, LA. Yes, the day began warm and only got warmer. By noon it was 97 degrees and topped out at 100 for most of the afternoon. They are definitely having a heat wave down here. Guess we need to return to Florida just to cool off.
I love Texas. And today did not disappoint. ...
... in a manner not intended. The State is working on rewording it to close down this obvious threat to 'merican family values.
Curiously enough there was a Daq To Go shack right outside my hotel in New Orleans that I frequented while staying there.
I had a long awesome FaceTime date with the Loverly Lady Eryn, did a little blogging and went to sleep, dreaming of The Big Easy!

Lafayette Louisiana is about 2 hrs away from New Orleans, and known for its Cajun food (versus Creole in Nola). We went on an amazing food tour by local Miss Marie, who taught us that Cajun is actually an American *******ization of "Acadian," the name for a group of French settlers in Canada in the 17th century, many of whose relatives eventually ended up in Louisiana.
... of the label Acadian. The word "Acadian" has modified in language usage to today’s term Cajun. It seems to be a term the people use proudly. Also, we’ve noticed that the local TV station and newspapers refer to the area as “Acadiana” rather than any other geographic or regional term. It’s used the same way we would use “The Research Triangle” or just “the Triangle”. ...
... as we still had an hours drive left. Headed back on the road, and pulled into our hotel, at about 6:30 p.m. We were starving so after dropping off our luggage, we headed back out. One of the great things about road trips is trying new and local food. Luckily there was a Raising Canes right across the street, so we didn't have to. We will be here for two nights. Hopefully we get to check out some Cajun food ...
