Today was the first day of a two-day date weekend, planning this afternoon to explore familiar Baton Rouge haunts we visited when Ann was at LSU.  The weather was mightily uncooperative as we arrived in Baton Rouge at the exact same time as a severe thunderstorm for which the Weather Service issued warnings.

Our sense of adventure wasn’t cheated by the blinding rain.


Brightside at Nicholson, near Ann’s old apartment dwelling: Tough going today!

We defied the weather’s unpleasantries undeterred, creeping through the rain-swept streets to arrive at our ultimate destination for lunch and leisure.

After an hour or so, the severe storm passed and gave way to clouds and wind, but no more rain.  We browsed the streets of Perkins Rowe with leisure, reminiscing of days gone by.
