Lafayette, LA & Tabasco

Lafayette, LA & Tabasco

We stopped for a night in Lafayette LA, on our way to Houston TX. We arrived at the KOA just off I-10 shortly before sunset. We ventured out to see the Old Town district, but did not find anything interesting there. We went a little further down the road and stopped for dinner at a small restaurant called Steve & Pat’s Bon Temps Grill. The food was fairly good and the local atmosphere of the restaurant was great.

In the morning we drove over to Avery Island and toured the TABASCO Museum and Factory. TABASCO was invented back in 1868 by Edmund McIlhenny on Avery Island. Today, his descendants run the company which provides the spicy red sauce to nearly every country around the world. We enjoyed learning about the history of the family and the famous sauce.

Following our TABASCO tour we headed back to the RV, packed up and prepared to work our way to Houston. However, right before we got back on the road we received a call from our kids, whom we were to meet in Houston. They were on the plane in Atlanta preparing for take-off when our five year old grand-daughter, Kensie, had a seizure. She had never had such an event. Long story short, Kensie had a Febrile Seizure. She is doing better now, but their trip to Houston was cancelled. Since our primary reason for going to Houston was to see the kids and they were no longer going we changed our plans and went straight to our next destination; Galveston, TX. More on that later……
