Crazy ‘Bout Crawfish Cajun Cafe

On the 18th of August, we stopped at the Crazy ‘Bout Crawfish Cajun Cafe in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana.

Tagging The Park – With Art!

Someone has been going around one of the local parks and ‘tagging’ the bottom of the picnic tables with actual artwork. Another park had a Che Guevara profile pic but we didn’t have our camera on hand to document it.
