6:00 a.m. - Woke up to the sound of my neighbors talking. It might not have been so bad, if they'd been having sex....at least that would have been interesting. Instead, they were packing and checking out. Not their fault, as they weren't making a lot of noise. This was just the noisiest, thinnest walls hotel I've been in for a long while. But, other than that, the hotel was very nice and they serve a great breakfast. I didn't really know what time we were supposed to meet, so I finally got up at 7:00 and got ready, planning to go to breakfast at 8. Ran into Cheri and Jane in the hallway, so we went down to break the fast together. As we finished up, Stacey popped in and said the others were going to "Clinton's", I think that's the name....it's a restaurant mentioned in books by a local author. As the three of us had eaten, we opted to stay at the hotel. I checked my email, then took a short nap (I did get woken up at 6, remember).
3:00 p.m. - Visited the gift shop...did I mention I've bought about 6 cookbooks on this trip? Then, headed for home.
This was a wonderful trip. I want to thank Stacey for thinking up this idea and for inviting us to join her. I lived in Ascension Parish, Louisiana (about 2 hours away from New Iberia) for 8 years, and never made it to Iberia Parish for a visit. I was missing out! I recommend a trip to everyone, but really, don't plan to go in July or August. The heat and humidity will be unbearable. March or April would be a great time to visit.
