After having a blast at Turtle's, it was time to start heading over to the camp, since we had just a few hours left, before dark. We rode on the levee and headed over to McGee's Landing to pick up a few supplies. I bought a few vintage postcards in the lovely gift shop, and we went outside on the deck to view the beautiful swamp before going to the camp. There were boaters coming in from a day on the water.
When we arrived, family members were already there and were grilling up some pork chops, sausage, and bbq beans. We were starving, at this point, and dove into this fabulous spread. Then I made a big batch of Banana Coladas and we played bouree', for a while.
Then it was time for a little music and dancing. Someone had brought a few Lost Bayou Rambler's CD's and cranked up the sound system, for a few hours of Cajun dancing. The Lost Bayou Ramblers have that old time Cajun sound, with a youthful flavor. Here is a little sample of their fabulous style at the Zydeco Festival in New Orleans, this summer. Enjoy!
Let the good times roll, cher!
