Great photos, Joe. You've told me about a place that I had never heard of. You might know about how the Cajuns in Louisiana started out as Arcadians in Canada...

JOE TODD said...

Snow I didn't know that.Thanks for the input. Did a little research seems like France screwed them over by then ceding Louisiana to Spain. Thanks for stopping by.
