Our Last Night on the Road!

Not much to report for yesterday - Bill drove and drove and drove. We left Slidell, Louisiana and stopped for the night in Lake City, FL. I had wanted to stop at Florida Caverns State Park but the tickets for the tour of the caverns are first come, first served and as we neared I called and we [...]

Adios Alamo

30 July 2021 | Eunice, Louisiana
Mary Yeomans | Partly cloudy, 96 degres
We woke up and packed up and put our things in the car in the parking garage, then walked to The Alamo. We hadn't made reservations so we would have to wait until later in the day to enter the building, but anyone can tour the grounds any time so we did that. It was much bigger than we thought! The Alamo church building itself is not large, but the grounds include courtyards and a very large area that is surrounded by a wall. Many plaques, statues, and posters kept us busy for quite awhile and we learned much about the history of the site. A military ceremony was taking place (a Marine retirement we learned) and we were told they often have things like this there. As we left there was a long line for reservations, so it does get busy!
Back at the car we found our way out of San Antonio and onto I-10 again. We hadn't made any plans so we were just driving until we were done, and we ended up in Eunice, Louisiana after Bill fought his way through lots of traffic and road construction - it was good to be out of Texas. I made the lodging reservations, and once we arrived I reminded Bill that we had decided earlier that should NOT be my job. Although this was rated "Very Good" on, it wasn't. The window glass was broken, the deadlock on the door didn't lock (and you could see daylight around the door) and the bathroom was very tiny. The whole place was pretty shabby. But, the bed was comfortable so we will survive.
We had a glass of wine and then headed to a Cajun restaurant. Bill had frog's legs - he loves them and must have them any time they are on the menu - and he said they were very good. I had crawfish etoufee - it was okay but not the best I've had. Back to the hotel for bedtime - not sure where we are headed next, but we will head east towards home!
