This morning we slept in and then went to Eunice to have a look downtown and visit the famous Liberty Theater where we enjoyed some music from Joel Savoy and friends (including Linzay Young from the Red Stick Ramblers).
I introduced Ruby’s Cafe, where you can get really good coffee, to the concept of the ‘flat white’ – though I think I will have to find a different name for it here. (Latte with no foam is not catchy and I bet you could never ask for a ‘short black’ here).
We then visited Marc Savoy’s accordion factory and then sped off to his farm for the famous crawfish boil which takes place at the back of his house under a huge live oak tree. Somehow I avoided dancing.
They boiled up 400lbs of crawfish and I was going great guns until I injured my right index finger on a claw. (That’s claw not claw!). This slowed me down considerably and I lost count of how many I had consumed but I bet the rest of the crawfish population cheered. The evening was topped off by some great smoked and grilled chicken. This is not the place to be a vegetarian.
The nature walk led by Marc reveealed the wonders of the fireflies which are amazing little insects with a wonderful effect.
