We had their famous Shrimp Arnaud's, a muffaletta, soft shell crab, red beans and rice and an excellent seafood gumbo. Kurt is now completely inspired to experiment more with Cajun cooking. I personally can't wait!
Consequently, we walked down to the river front and decided to visit the Aquarium of the Americas. Overall this was a pretty good exhibit - we were happy because we they had a lot of sharks.
We found a Walgreens on Canal Street to buy more film and then decided to try to find a cemetery; we wanted to capture a few pictures of the mausoleums prevalent in that region of the country. First we located New Orleans Cemetery since it appeared to be the closest to the French Quarter. Also the "Queen of Voodoo" supposedly haunted it. We discovered the cemetery was in an extremely bad part of town and it closed at 3:00pm so we decided to check out Lafayette Cemetery. We assumed it would be on Lafayette Street, so we tried to locate that street. After circling the area the map showed as Lafayette Street, we determined the road no longer runs though - thanks Rand McNally. It was getting a little late so we headed out of town. On the way, we spotted a huge cemetery just off the freeway - jackpot! We got out and took about 20 pictures
We cruised along the north side of the lake and stopped
in Lacomb, LA, for ice and water at another Wal-mart. We also had a bad
Taco Bell dinner, especially after fabulous Cajun food for the last day
He ended up with about 30 bites around his knees. We finally got to sleep even though it must have been close to 90 degrees with about 99% humidity. (Day 5)
