Yes, indeed, we’ve been caught in Betty’s web, and a delightful one it is. Betty is a ball of fire and fun, making sure her guests are well cared for and that they experience the culture of Abbeville and Southern Louisiana in the finest manner. We were very happy campers!!
There is so much to see, do and learn here….so much history, from the Indians to the French, Acadians and Spanish…. such a proud and treasured culture from the people who still speak French with a pronounced accent AND a bit of a drawl, and who make music, food and dancing an important and integral part of their lives…..and they just love sharing it with those of us who come in search of it!!
Learning about the agriculture and farming, and way of life…just tasting the fresh and delicious Creole food is a never ending joy. The warmth and welcome that these folks extend to you is hard to describe….it makes you want to be a better person, and to savor the simple delights of life, and share them as these folks….Creoles, Cajuns…Louisianians do……and you really do not want to leave. Betty’s web, is indeed, a fine place to be!!!
Parting was sweet sorrow, but we had the BEST send-off team….
our own personal driving instructor…….
do you recognize this guy???? How ‘bout those shoes???
And this team s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d- across Betty’s drive….
really made us hate to leave….but there we go down the road!!! Red Bay, Alabama in our sights!!!
