It’s been a long time since I wrote an Exploring Louisiana post. Our last visit with Chris, we decided to do some “out of the Alexandria area” exploring.
We picked him up on Friday about noon and had a nice lunch at Outlaw’s Barbeque in Pineville. It’s pretty good BBQ and it’s reasonably priced. They also have good fried catfish and shrimp.
Now, I have to admit that my favorite on the road BBQ is Rudy’s in Texas. That’s some good BBQ!. I like it so much that I found a copycat recipe online for their sauce and that’s what I cook up when we do BBQ.
After lunch, we hit the road to Natchitoches. It looks like it would be pronounced “natch-short “i”-toe-ch-s” but that’s not it. It sounds like “nack- short “i” – tish”.
It’s an old city on the banks of the Cane River. We found a place to park and walked the brick street and enjoyed the lovely atmosphere.
If Chris is still living at Pinecrest during the Christmas season, we are going to try to attend the Festival of Lights. He’s been twice and says it’s wonderful.
Enough pictures for today. I’ve got quite a few more to share with you from this glorious day. Denise & Wanda—-if we were ever going to have another Quilter’s Romp—-this place would be a great one. I just don’t know if they have a quilt shop nearby.
