10 November 2014 | Morgan City, Louisiana
Yesterday saw the arrival of Robyn's Nest and Milady at Morgan City. It was a very nice day down the Atchafalaya River. Upon our arrival, we saw a shrimp boat with fresh shrimp for sale. We bought 3 pounds of jumbo shrimp for $13. I had never cleaned shrimp before, so Melinda and Kevin gave us lessons on cleaning shrimp. We walked about a mile to a grocery store to get a few things we needed for our shrimp feast.
When we got back to the wharf, we put our feast preparations in in high gear! Oh was it delicious! We had blackened and lemon peppered shrimp tacos, red potatoes, corn on the cob, fresh garlic bread, and Louisiana lemon crunch cake for desert. I think I can get used to this!
Today we are going to go to Houma, Louisiana. There is a public dock there next to a city park, with laundry and other necessities within walking distance. Until next time...
