Friday - We got off to a leisurely start and drove up Hwy 77 stopping at Refugio TX for lunch. What is the history of this place with all its ruined mansions? On toward Houston, taking the route that would put us closest to the gulf. We spent the night at Port Lavaca as close to the water as we could get.
Saturday - Although it was far too cold to really enjoy the coast, we did find one little spot that needs further review, Palacios TX. We got to Ken and Ivy's shortly after lunch. As always, we had a delightful time with them. They always make us feel right at home and they know all the good places to go.
Monday - It was cold, but we bundled up and took off through the frozen marsh as far as Breaux Bridge, LA. Located on the banks of Bayou Teche, the Cajun influence could not have been much thicker; the people were friendly, friendly, friendly; the little town was charming; and the food was wonderful.
