Cajunville

Deep in south Louisiana gentle cool breezes bathes ones face and the smell of gardenia ripples through the air.  There are crawfish boiling in the back yard and the senses are tingled by the aroma of gumbo simmering on the stove.  Friends are gathered and are discussing the Fais do do tonight and which Cajun Band will be playing.  If you close your eyes you can almost feel the breeze cool your skin and smell the gumbo simmering.  Tap you feet a little and you can hear the accordion and fiddle tune up for the Fais do do.  Where are you?  You are in Cajunville on the banks of Cajun Bay.  It may be in your mind or it may be real, yet wherever and whatever it is, it will conjure up lazy afternoons on the bayou fishing, late nights dancing at the dance hall, and the smell of fresh coffee early in the morning.  It will bring back memories of childhood or last Saturday night’s dance.  No matter what memory or sense it tingles, Cajunville will put a smile on your face, a twinkle in your eye, and a foot tapping tune in your mind.
