FlotaSHON, ConnecSHON and DestinaSHON

I’m an Adam Sandler fan and love to imitate Cajun Man.  Today was a drive day that took us into a new state: Louisiana!  So, I had to bust out a few -tion- words to annoy my lovely wife.  So now I will share with you some of the highlights of this travel day in my best Cajun Man accent.

FlotaSHON:  After leaving GalvesTON we boarded the Galveston-Bolivar ferry.  Yup, took the beast and Ava on a big ol boat!  The cost: FREE!  JubilaSHON!!

ConnecSHON: Drove on the Atchafalaya bridge…its the 3rd longest bridge in the US.  This thing was nuts.  Over 18 miles of bridge connects the 2 shores.  And it was bumpy.  VibraSHON!

DestinaSHON: We had originally thought we’d stay at Niblett’s Bluff in VinTON Louisiana…but we were making good time so decided to huff it to BaTON Rouge.  Just across the Mississippi river we exited the interstate, passed LSU and are camped at Farr Park equestrian center which exceeded my expectaSHON.

    Let’s try that again. Darn spell checker.
    I am glad you made it in a good condi-shone. It is much more than a vaca-shone. It is educa-shone, observa-shone, and a time to build relation-shone-ships.

    The kids look like they are really enjoying the expiramentaSHON. I wonder if the long bumpy bridge led to any heart PalpataSHON. Louisiana, specifically New Orleans is one of my favorite cities, if not #1. Lots to see, eat and listen to there at JackSHON square. The street performers are the best in the work at their tradiSHON, and expect plenty of crowd participaSHON, and an occasional stipeOND.

      Indeed. The musiSHONs are very good. LibaSHONs are plentiful. We tried the local confecSHONs (bignets and pralines). Downside was we got a fair amount of 2nd hand smoke through inhalaSHON.
