We stopped at a Target in Lafayette to pick up a few things. They also had a Starbuck’s there. After Target, we went to Crowley to have lunch at the Boudin King, Cajun Way restaurant. It was as good as I remembered. I had a fried catfish Po boy. Kate and Sarah had fried shrimp Po boys. We also got an order of fries, hushpuppies, and fried okra. It was a wonderful cholesterol laden meal.
The next stop was Iota, where we used to live. A lot has changed there, but a lot of it looked the same. We were disappointed to see our old house. It is in dire need of a paint job, and it looks like the people who live there are pretty trashy.
We stopped to see if Clint Bischoff was in his office. He was our lawyer when we adopted Sarah. Unfortunately, he was not there. We will probably not get back there to see him while we are here.
While we were at the hotel, Kate looked up a couple of graves in Lake Charles where some of Sarah’s biological ancestors are buried. We found the three graves and took a few photos of the graves. When we left there, we drove by the house where we lived in Lake Charles. It is still there. We drove through the McNeese State University campus and then past the hospital where Sarah was born. After that, we headed to downtown Lake Charles. We never spent any time downtown. We were always too busy, but it was a nice downtown area.
While we were downtown, we stopped at Lake Charles, the lake. We saw quite a few ducks and other water birds. It was a nice walk along the water.
