Ed & Marilyn 'The Happy Wanderers' travel blog

Some days you feel so content that you just have to whisper a prayer of thanks, for the blessings you receive. Today was like that for us.

On the advice of several other folks in the RV family here at Betty’s RV Park, we drove to a nice restaurant called “River Front”.

The name may be all one word. I’m not sure about that, but I do know that we have discovered another great place for Cajun food.

Marilyn & I skipped breakfast this morning, thinking that we might drive over to “Suire’s” one more time before we leave here tomorrow.

Once our neighbors began describing the food at “River Front”, we changed our minds, wanting to give this new place a try.

We drove into a parking lot which was about half full. We considered that a good sign since we arrived shortly after they opened for lunch at 11:00.

I noticed that the special, written on the blackboard we walked past, was a seafood sampler platter for only $10.00.

We selected a table on the beautiful deck outdoors. Marilyn forgot the camera so I have no pictures to share with you, but you may take our word for it that the place is beautiful.

Plants everywhere decorated the deck, which is partially covered, with nice lighting, and comfortable, cushioned, cane furniture.

The food was great! The seafood platter consisted of fried shrimp, fried catfish, a seafood patty, crayfish jambalaya, and a small bowl of crab au gratin. I chose corn maque choux, while Marilyn chose sweet potato fries as a side dish. Both of us opted for sweet tea to drink.

The service was good, the meal was great and the weather was as near perfect as it could be. Temperature in the mid to upper 70’s with a light breeze, bright sunshine, and a view of the Vermilion Bayou flowing by the restaurant.

It just doesn’t get any better than this!

We spent much of the remainder of the day just relaxing because of the night out planned by Betty, for everyone here.

We will all go to the theater for a dinner with wine, provided by a local Mexican restaurant, followed by a comedy play, performed by a community theater group.

So, another wonderful day passes by, having firmly planted sweet memories in our memory bank.

We’ll be leaving tomorrow morning, heading to the Rio Grande Valley, but we leave with fond memories of our time here in Cajun country.

We have been caught in Betty’s web, and we look forward to returning here next spring, on our way to Tennessee.

Life is Good!
