A down day. NOT!

Today was to be a down day as we have been on the go since January 20th.

We had decided that today we would kick back, do laundry, etc.

Well, it didn't quit work out that way. We did do laundry this morning, had a bite to eat for lunch then drove to Abita Springs about 20 miles away in time to taste beer at the 2 PM tasting and do the brewery tour.

They do things right. First we taste then we tour then we taste again. Everyone gets a plastic cup and pours their own beer from multiple taps. The choice is up to you. If you don't like what you poured, just dump it down the drain and try another. We formed a line and passed behind the bar to pour. At first the line just went round and round as people drank what they had poured by the time there were back behind the bar. It slowed down as people got their first thirst slacked.

We then toured the brewery which is new and high tech and expanding. Very impressive. They also make a very good root beer.

On the way back to the RV's we stopped for groceries.
