We’ve made the 6 hour drive from Houston, through Baton Rouge then the swampy, delightful Bayou and arrived on Bourbon Street.
Our menu is fresh outta the Mississippi river, mudbugs, catfish, crawfish – all broiled and as Cajun as it comes.
This is a place I’ve dreamt of visiting for at least a decade, and now it’s time to laissez les bon temps rouler.
Here we’ll be enjoying lots of amazing fish, jazz and Creole culture. We’ll be soaking up the Voodoo history, visiting a Cajun village, taking an airboat ride on the Bayou and probably getting eaten alive by mosquitos. The stories of Marie Laveau and Delphine LaLaurie are waiting to be told, St Louis Cemetery is poised for exploration.
It will be an awesome 2 days.
The forecast is a hearty 27 degrees, with the potential for a soothing drizzle.
Ps I’ll be running the Great Manchester 10k on May 11th in aid of The Wood Street Mission. They are a Manchester charity dedicated to supporting local families living in poverty. All of your support is massively appreciated by me and of course the 14,000 children affected by poverty in Manchester.
