Louisiana, you are a gem. I never though I would be saying that but I can’t wait to go back. We left New Orleans to spend the night in Breaux Bridge, the crawfish capital of the world!
During the afternoon, we went on a swamp tour and it was amazing. After watching True Detective I was super stoked to take a tour on the Bayou. It was magical, we saw literally a THOUSAND gators! They all smiled at us, included the biggest gator in the swamp, over 100 years old and 15ft long. He was hissing at us but I knew he was really saying “Hey Baby” to us.
We had dinner at Pont Breaux’s Cajun Restaurant complete with Zydeco music. There were several couples that were dancing non-stop, they had more energy than us combined. We just gawked at them and then proceeded to stared down a family eating crawfish. Their hands moved so quickly through those lil red devils; one day we will learn how to suck guts but for now we will just stick to the fried fishes.
We stayed at the Bayou Cabins in town and they were so wonderful, reminds me of summer camp! Rustic and super comfortable! Breakfast was included and we both had the cajun breakfast platter which included: boudin, cracklings, head cheese, and eggs. The cracklings were something different, so much food to digest in the morning but we are getting very used to it.
