I was so ready for a road trip, and while I closed my eyes at the sight of Mobile, Alabama, I joyfully sang my way through Mississippi with Jesse Winchester. What was I singing as I crossed the river in Baton Rouge? You tell me!
Arrived to a warm afternoon in Lafayette and walked for hours while enjoying the day after Mardi Gras decor, and the French signage throughout the city. Four days at the Blue Moon is indescribable -- the comfort, the people, the music, the fun to be had. By far, Lafayette wins the award thusfar for the friendliest people ever; genuinely friendly. I understand why people arrive & just never leave, Rich. It's been ages since I woke up with calves aching from hours of dancing but indeed, I did last week! Thanks to Doug and April for your gracious welcome and hospitality. Thanks to Philippe for the farewell coffee time.
There's a few things I still need to do in Lafayette so I'll be back!
