Winding down the stay in Louisiana. It has been so much fun and we have been so busy.
Monday Betty arranged for us all to attend a high rollers party at a local casino. For seven bucks we got a bus ride there, free drinks, food and some good dance music. And you got five dollars back in match play. We were there for four hours. A good time was had by all.
Tuesday one of our fellow campers arranged a tour of Martin Accordion. Located in Scott La. a close suburb of Lafayette. This is a small family run business with three generations currently employed. They manufacture very high quality accordions mainly used for Cajun music.
They gave a good history of Cajun/Zydeco music and demonstrate with live playing. They explained how they build there accordions allowed us to wander through the shop and see them in different stages. These tours need to be arranged if interested.
Wednesday our last full day at Betty's. Betty sent out an email that we would have a pot luck dinner party as there were a few campers (funseekers) scheduled to leave on Thursday. One of the campers also leaving Thursday here would walk in each night to happy hour with a big "Hello Funseekers" welcome.
If you haven't been to Louisiana or got a taste of Cajun culture there is no better place than Betty's in Abbeville. It is a place where you come a stranger and leave part of the Betty family.
