I had such a rough trip home in December that I haven't really wanted to blog about it... but I saw some really incredible things and took some wonderful pictures.

On New Year's Eve, my mother is usually the v.i.p. guest at one or both of the casinos in Baton Rouge. I could care less about the party but the food rocks! So we had a really nice dinner together and it was the highlight of a very difficult time for both of us.

These pictures were taken through a glass window at the Rouge (both casinos have changed names numerous times but for me, they will always be their original names: The Belle of Baton Rouge and Casino Rouge.). I took the pictures throughout our dinner of boiled shrimp, king crab and the MOST amazing crab claw salad (crab claws marinated in Italian dressing).

Both Casinos sit on the always fascinating Mississippi River.

After dinner, Mom hit the casino and I went to a party in Walker that was much more my speed. I'll tell you about it tomorrow.

And... Happy (very belated!) New Year.

What a lovely sunset on the river. And this post has made me hungry for seafood.
