Breakfast out turned into lunch at Lagniappe Too in New Iberia. Cajun breakfast service apparently shuts down at 10:30 – 11:00 AM; my guess is that the Cajun’ cooks want to get right to the seafood. No matter. Lagniappe Too was good comfort food, Cajun’ comfort food. Fair portions at a good price done well. Wait staff was friendly and talkative. If I’m local then I go back here often.  The older guy, a patron, at the entry when we were looking at the menu, called out that this was the place to eat. I have to agree!  The owner chatted us up as we were leaving. Nice guy! Again good food at good prices.

The Shadows On the Teche a wonderfully preserved and restored 19th century antebellum style sugar plantation house is on Main Street, New Iberia in the historic district. Beautiful place. Take the tour; ask for Audrey, she doesn’t miss a beat. Go when the pink azaleas are out. Nice place to photograph. They have done a nice job with the restoration and preservation. It is good that there are property owners amongst us who think ahead, along the lines of preservation and restoration, especially those with resources. God bless the idiosyncratic quirky folks among us with money. … And I am not being snide, on the contrary I am being quite sincere.

Here, Here! to the Week’s family and the National Trust.

Imagine all my skies in this post as deep blue and not burnt out overcast. Thank you!
