Lake Charles, LA

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
