We made this brief stop near Lake Charles on our way east from Galveston, TX. Lake Charles is only about 30 miles east of the Texas-Louisiana border. It has the interesting distinction of being one of the most humid cities in the contiguous United States. It has an average humidity of 90% in the morning and 72% in the afternoon. Lake Charles is also the largest casino market in the state of Louisiana.
While we were here we celebrated Valerie’s birthday. We had a nice lunch at Tia Juanita’s Fish Camp in downtown Lake Charles. We had grilled catfish with grilled vegetables and rice along with their seafood gumbo. Very tasty.
Next stop: New Iberia, LA
