Oak Alley Plantation

Alan awoke during the night with a headache caused by making decaf coffee instead of regular last night. The error was discovered by BJ this AM. Decaf coffee is a cruel hoax.

Hard to believe we are on the last leg of the Great River Road adventure. Today we checked out of our cozy Doctor's cottage at Oak Alley, had breakfast, and then toured the Oak Alley Plantation. What a beautiful setting.

On the way down the River we stopped at the B&C Cajun Restaurant where we had gotten the boiled crabs from last night and tried their gumbo. Served in true Cajun fashion with rice in the gumbo and potato salad on the side, Alan had chicken and sausage and I had seafood.

After we reached New Orleans and checked into "our" B&B, Maison Perrier, Alan walked over to Magazine Street and got his hair cut. When he got back to the B&B, we went over to Mama's apartment and took her out to dinner at one of our favorite restaurants La Petite Grocery.

Tomorrow we are going to go to the French Quarter to try to find a painting for Ethan and Erica that they have been wanting for 2 1/2 years and then later we are meeting my cousin for dinner. We already have lunch and dinner reservations for the rest of the weekend and hopefully will also get to visit with my aunt. Sounds like a plan to me!
