We took our lunch time to drive to the capitol and see the city from the tallest state capitol in the US. The top picture is taken from the observation deck of the 27th floor, 350 feet up, and overlooks some of the port of Baton Rouge and capitol gardens. It only take 10 minutes to get from the mission office to the capitol--not exactly like going into downtown Los Angeles.
We even had time to eat lunch. Drumroll please! Marc had red beans and rice with sausage and cornbread! Such a brave man:) I had okra and greens. Southern food is YUM!
On our way out we passed this beautiful camelia bush in full bloom.
The Elders came to dinner tonight. Elder Adkins snapped this one of Elder Watkins ready to eat lime jello and pears--2 of his favorites. Lucky for him it was St. Patrick's Day and it fit right in with our traditional menu.
