Texas, Louisiana

Monday October 15

We got lost leaving Austin. The GPS got confused and sent us to San Antonio (South) instead of Houston (East). We had told it we were going to Lafayette, Louisiana.

Still cruising along at 75-80 miles an hour,

we drove past a lot of ranches.

Drove by downtown Houston.

We were very excited that Louisiana greeted us in French.

We decided to take a detour and go see the Gulf of Mexico.

We discovered that we needed to take a ferry, but fortunately we arrived just as it was about to leave.

Once we were in Lafayette we went out to dinner at Randol's,

a place that features Cajun specialties (we had alligator and crawfish) and live dancing. We got to enjoy watching local couples dance to Cajun music.
