I met a couple of farmers at lunch. They did soybeans, milo, rice, and crawfish. They said that crawfish are already in the ground, and they just come up and eat the slime on the rice stalks without damaging the rice. They also agreed that I should take Highway 1.
After I took a shower and cleaned up, I had several choices for dinner. Morel’s Restaurant on the lake, associated with the lodging. Satterfield’s Restaurant, also on the lake, which had a basket of crawfish prepared 3 ways, plus fries, for $15, and 12″ pizza for $7. There was also Tiger Drive In – probably cheap, but nothing special. Ma Mama’s Kitchen was across the street, serving a variety of fine food. Google maps had two dollar signs on it. It was fairly upscale, but I tried it.
I also had seafood pasta, which was shrimp, crawfish, crab, and bacon in a cream sauce over angel hair. Good, but only good. I didn’t get a picture.
This concluded Map 5 of 7, and I will start on Map 6 tomorrow.
Miles today: 68.2 (on account of taking Hwy 1 shortcut)
