Today we checked out of the French Quarter RV Resort and started driving towards Texas. It was a pretty drive over many bridges and bayous. We arrived late afternoon at our stop for the night…..Frascone Winery in Anahuac Texas. We sampled several wines and meads and of course had to try the house specialty……alligator eggrolls! Our favorite wine was the Blackberry wine.
After our appetizers….we walked several blocks along the waterfront to a local “joint”….Channel Marker 17…..where many locals were hanging out eating crawfish. Dwight of course had to find out everything about crawfish……and made himself home watching and learning how they clean, boil, and steam them. Being brave…..we ordered a pound ourselves and Dwight got a lesson on the proper method of eating them from Patsy at the bar. Before leaving we stapled a dollar bill to the pole at the bar to commemorate our visit.
On the walk home….we stopped at the dock to watch the sunset over Trinity Bay…..with Houston and Galveston off in the distance.
