Just had a minute this evening jump on here and email some photos to the kids….. and so I thought I would share a few photos with y’all too. (that southern slang is catchy!!)
This is a crawfish hole…… they come up out of the ground in some spots because the water table is so high. And these pretty little pink flowers are all over the place.
Little gator……. mama spotted this one 🙂
The last few days have been an exhausting whirlwind of looking at house…. after house…. after house….. we’ve taken a few breaks here and there to enjoy some local food. The crawfish are in season and they are awesome!! We also ate at this little Cuban place and let me tell you, I think I could eat black beans and rice every day for the rest of my life!! It is so amazingly yummy! The people here are so friendly…. even though I know they thought I was strange when I brought my own cloth grocery bag to the store!
The bayous and swamps are every bit as mystical as I thought they would be. Filled with cypress trees and hanging moss and birds and creatures I have only seen in books and tons of dragonflies. I have taken lots of pictures so I will keep adding a few on here every day.
Right now I am going to sit back and relax and keep my fingers crossed, we made on offer on a house today. So send us some good vibes 🙂
