The "Cajun Riviera"

Here's the thing about RV travel...you've got to be flexible.  We didn't take Spring Break into consideration when we started out...and places where we've never needed reservations before are now booked solid.

No worries.  There's so much in the great state of Texas we haven't seen yet, so who needs Louisiana anyhow?

Before we got too far away though, I've always wanted to see the Louisiana Coast.  So, we took a long drive south from Orange, down through many, many petroleum refineries (nasty!) then east toward what the travel brochures call the "Cajun Riviera."

Well.  Now I've seen it.  Here's the photos to prove it.


Cowboy loves beaches.  He could have walked along here for miles.  But we were hungry.

Jetty.

Bikers.

Beach debris.

Charlie's ready to go!
Ugh... I think the Cajuns need to clean up their beach.

So, all in all, it was a good, educational day.  We ended up in Lake Charles, where we found a nice lunch, so that was good.  But I don't think I'll be wanting to visit the "Cajun Riviera" again any time soon!

Saturday was housework and laundry day, Sunday we went to First Baptist Church in Beaumont.  We moved further west Monday, and this week has been great.  Not everything goes our way when we're camping, but then, it doesn't always when we're home either.  Life on the road is good.
