Postcard from America: Day 17 – Gator Aid

Today we left the deserts of the past week and into the swamp land of Louisiana as we headed off to New Orleans.

With a 6 hour drive and departing at 8am we had a chance to be flexible with sightseeing along the way.

Our first stop was to be breakfast but we couldn’t find anything except chains like Ihop/McDonald’s/Waffle House until almost lunchtime when we got to Lake Charles where we stopped at Luna Bar & Grill and enjoyed a rather fine meal.

After lunch we found a Louisiana Spirits a rum distillery and took their free tour and a few samples which resulted in us buying 2 bottles 😊

Whilst there we were tipped off about a Gator rescue place that allowed you to handle the baby gators and Louise was sold on that idea so off we went to Gator Chateau.

We finally arrived in New Orleans and along the way see a roadside as that made me chuckle as I thought it made the guy look like he had big square Mickey Mouse ears, maybe that is just my odd sense of humour.
