Back at it

It was hard to see Megan go this afternoon. We had a really good time in NO though and I think we saw everything we wanted to. The days seemed to blend together and I’m kind of glad it was only as long as it was.

We had fun at the tomato festival this morning even though there really wasn’t that much going on.

I dropped Megan off at the airport at 2pm and I was on the road again. It didn’t take me very long to get through the city and soon I was on back roads through the bayou. Apparently that’s some people’s idea of a great place to retire. I assume the fishing is amazing and if that’s what you’re into, you’d be hard pressed to find a better place.

As I was driving up over lake Ponchartrain, a regatta was passing under the bridge. I stopped to take a couple photos.

The drive was interesting. Not too scenic but interesting nonetheless. I even drove past one of the largest military shipyards. I had no idea it was there.

As I was turning out of Mobile Alabama, I saw a sign for Battleship Park and the USS Alabama. Unfortunately I was 30 minutes past closing time so I couldn’t tour the ship itself but it was neat to explore the grounds. Quite a few other vehicles there as well.

My planned campground was another 47 miles away. I checked my distances and my cousins, who I plan to spend the next few days with, was only 51 miles away. I called and asked if I could come a day early. She graciously obliged and so I am on my way. I stopped to give her some more time and then I’ll finish my night there. I’m excited to see her family.

The south has been a great journey so far. It’s a beautiful place and so much more than I expected. And it’s not over yet. So much more to come.
