We made it back to Lake Charles and stayed at the same hotel we stayed at the beginning of the trip. We unloaded and heads to the historical area but instead we found the actual Lake Charles. It is huge. We found the Lake Charles Gator Pond. It had turtles and a couple alligators. We weren't as impressed as we were at the beginning of the trip. LOL! DH and I finally ate at a Cracker Barrel, one of most favorite restaurants. At the table, the photo of a man was staring at us all through dinner. We made up a story about him being killed by Louisiana wildlife. Guess you had to be there. LOL! TFL!
