L'auberge Casino Resort -- Thursday, September 25

Thursday morning we had a leisurely breakfast at the B&B in Vicksburg before we packed up and headed to Louisiana.  A last visit to the home, and a nice conversation with another couple who had just arrived the night before from St. Louis.  They were doing some family tree/history travel.

Passing over the Mississippi a couple of times winding our way south, we arrived in Lake Charles around 1pm.  We stopped at John's favorite Cajun restaurant in the world, Steamboat Bill's for a late lunch.  We both had the gumbo -- so good.

Then we headed over to L'auberge at about 2:30 pm to check in.  I didn't take too many photos here because they won't let you take pictures in the casino.  We spent some time there, relaxed a lot, and had a late dinner at the Buffet there.  John did some more gambling after dinner, but I went up to just relax some more.  It was a great evening.
 Pretty room....

The view from our window -- 12th floor. They are building a Golden Nugget next door. The lazy river pool below us is part of this casino. It was over-cast, so not too many in the pool.

Friday was a travel day -- home again.  A perfect vacation!
