Here There and Everywhere

Gigi’s in Cameron, Louisiana

Our friend at the Wildlife Center, Sarah, highly recommended Gigi’s, and we were really really hungry when we got there, so it should have been a really good experience, and besides, Cameron is small and I didn’t see any other options.



View out towards Gulf:

Have I mentioned, only a thousand times, how fabulous the weather is? It’s seventy-something and like zero humidity. It doesn’t even matter that we are eating outdoors; the weather is perfect.

We order.

Honestly, when did I become a squeamish woman? Certainly not my early years in Tunis, and Amman, when we had to strain the weevils out of our flour and pasta. But as I watched a fly try to get into the ketchup through the tip of the dispenser, I sort of lost my appetite. The other problem is that AdventureMan and I really try to eat sensibly; we’re not extreme, every now and then we have something fried, but the food in Louisiana is rich, we haven’t seen a lot of vegetables, and when our food arrived – so much food – I couldn’t begin to eat it all. I ate about half my shrimp and an onion ring. The shrimp was really fresh.


AdventureMan had fried shrimp and catfish. He said it was really good. He also couldn’t eat it all.


Cameron isn’t very big.


But this is really fun. A $1. ferry!

And guess which parking space we got? And when we got into the space, there were dolphins, lots and lots of dolphins, no, porpoises, and oh, they were having such a good time in the sunlight.


Dolphins are not that easy to photograph . . . .

We keep seeing these wonderful signs to tell us we are still on the right trail 🙂 This ferry ride was a Louisiana Lagniappe (a little something extra!)

  1. Wonderful write up! We were at Gigi’s for a late lunch 6 months earlier 23rd April 2014 as part of an 8 week road trip around the US, we’re from NZ. Your photos look just like ours. Is Gigi’s still there? I heard it was wiped out by Hurricane Laura.

    • Debbie, I don’t know. We were back there two years ago and I looked for it but didn’t see it. Not just the storm – COVID also impacted and closed many smaller places reliant on travelers and people passing by. I hope you will be visiting the USA again soon! There are so many beautiful places, and so many small gems like Gigi’s.
