Triipping to Florida - Part 2

Tuesday - We traveled down to St. Martinville for an Acadian history lesson.  We walked the entire town,  visited the memorial, and had crawfish over rice at the Petit Paris Cafe.

A tribute to Longfellow and his famous Evangeline

The Acadians who first settled the area

Instead of returning to -10 directly, we followed a maze of country roads and got back to the interstate right by the Atchafalaya 
Welcome Center.  After following rivers, creeks, swamps and levees for miles we were fascinated by the wealth of material at the center.  On down to Bay St. Louis just as it was too dark to see the scenery.
