Before taking off for our first day of touring, we provided breakfast: Smoked salmon sunrise, coffee, tea, etc.
Then, off to Vermillionville in Lafayette. It is a living history museum depicting the Acadia, Native American and Creole people of 1765 to 1890. 7 restored original homes.
Demonstrations of crafts performed by early settlers.
Lunch at La Cuisine De Maman, serving Cajun and Creole cuisine and 1800s home with servers in period costume. I have to say that was the best gumbo soup I’ve ever had! Bread pudding for dessert. Bread pudding is the dessert of choice in this area. So we decided to have a bread pudding contest to see which establishment REALLY has the BEST BREAD PUDDING.
While at Vermillionville we had a dance lessons, cooking demonstration and a boat ride.
R&M Boiling Point for dinner, a family restaurant specializing in Cajun cuisine. Our choice of shrimp, catfish, alligator, chicken strip, crawfish etoufee, or hamburger! What a menu!
And what is their signature cocktail? A BLOODY MARY! Complete topped with a soft shell crab, and EVERYONE got one.
And of course, there is ALWAYS time for a photo op.
