TL: We got on the road early, and headed back toward New Orleans. It was Brittania's last day and we had a lot of miles to cover.As we drove into the little town of Abbeville we discovered the downtown was blocked off and there was all kinds of activities going on. There was music (there is always music), food and craft booths, and this group of children who were singing songs in French. (I admit--they needed a lot more practice)
We got into Jamie & Linda's driveway after dark and woke up before dawn the next morning to get Brittania to the airport. Thank you so much for coming, Brittania, it was so fun. I admire you for being such a good sport--you ate raw oysters & alligator, you slept on a mini-bunk in a teeny space shared by a cat and me and never showed a minutes discomfort. I hope we can do it again.
