BLT: And then… the best part of the day started – the Zydeco band took the stage and they were FANTASTIC! The atmosphere went directly into party mode – at 8:30am! No sooner than the band get two notes out and the dancers took to the dance floor!! What an experience – it was just like being in the local country bar here in Tucson at 9pm on a Saturday night! The dancers were incredible and so much fun to watch… the feeling in the air was just one of pure joy and good times… as Toni said to me, “Laissez les bon temps rouler” – and this was definitely letting the good times roll!!
Earl even asked our good-natured server to take me for a spin on the dance floor- I am definitely clumsy by nature, and he was surely a good sport! It took a couple of tries, but I think we had it down just as the song was ending – I am pretty sure he was relieved!
BLT: Because there was still a line outside, by the time we ate our breakfast and got to watch the show for a bit, our server very nicely asked us for our table, which we gave up and we stood and watched for a bit, and then needed to go for a walk!
We walked around the town for a bit, and saw some great antique stores. Breaux Bridge is a wonderful small town full of great food, great sights and great people! We went to THE Breaux Bridge that Toni’s Grandfather had worked on during the depression – very neat for Toni to have that kind of connection to the heart of this town!!
