My daughter, Cynthia and her husband, George, visited with us for about a week. We were very happy to entertain them for their stay. We attended church, rode down to New Orleans and toured Baton Rouge looking for “Baton Rouge” T-Shirts and post cards. These items are hard to find, even at gift shops in Baton Rouge.

While in New Orleans, we ate at “Bubba Gump Seafood”, in the French Quarter. The food was excellent! The same comment could be made for out night out at Baton Rouge’s “Ralph and Kacoo’s Seafood. Every night we ate at a different place with excellent food.

We walked through the newly renovated “Riverwalk” in New Orleans at the end of Canal St. I remember when that place was built as a part of the New Orleans World’s Fair back in the early 80’s. That was when I arrived in the area also. After the fair, the Riverwalk was converted to a shopping mall. Sometime within the past 3-4 years, they did another conversion to make the place a very beautiful discount outlet center. I was very impressed. Most of the same stores are still there, but many of them are now outlet stores. Don’t forget to get your parking ticket validated before you leave. Saves a lot of the price of parking if you spend at least $20 total while on the Riverwalk.
