After waking up in the rest stop, we made some coffee and hit the road. The ride through Eastern Texas treated us with beautiful weather.After putting in some miles we pulled off the interstate and went into a county park to cook some lunch. It was a beautiful place to take a break and have a meal.After eating we packed up and got back on the road. It wasn't long until we crossed over into Louisiana.As soon as we crossed over from Texas we knew that Louisiana was a gambling state because of all the casinos. We held out for a while, but eventually we just had to go check one out. We ended up at the Delta Downs, which is a casino and horse racing track. I soon found out that they didn't have any table games so I contented myself with their free coffee and soda and walked around outdoors while Dar gambled. Having never been to a real race track it was cool to see how its all laid out.After the Casino we continued on our way. We were advised that Lafayette, Louisiana has some of the best BBQ around so we stopped there to give it a try. We stopped at a place called 2Paul's Radically Urban Barbecue, aside from the service which was horrible, the food was delicious. After dinner we hit the road again and stopped at a Louisiana Welcome Center (aka truck stop) to spend the night. We pulled into a nice spot and called it a night.
