No pics today (except of my breakfast, at Beau Rivage, for the "capture your 365" daily photo). I just drove. All images include here are courtesy of the Magic Google Machine. I'm on I-10, which just about speaks for itself. (Oh, stop yawning!) There is, however, the Atchafalaya basin drive, which is rather interesting. I think, though, it was much drier than it was the last time I made the drive. It's kind of amazing driving a roadway through water. A totally different feel from your basic, every day bridge.
This was also Big Muddy day - crossing the mighty Mississippi.
The call letters on TV and radio change from Wxxx to Kxxx once your on the other side. Last time I crossed, she was all gnarly and churning. Today she was as smooth as, well, a river. That sucker sure is muddy, though. Of course I'm down here at the delta end. One of these days I'll have to take a drive up to the other end and see if it's muddy up there. I took the I-12 way around, so missed NOLA completely. Probably just as well, as I may have been tempted to take a little stroll down Bourbon Street. And we all know that one cannot continue to drive after one of those strolls!
daiquiri, anyone? name your pleasure!
I bet he got a LOT of beads! Guess we know what's under the kilt now!!!!!
Still in the central time zone. Probably won't get to mountain time till Sunday, when I finally get OUT of Texas. Gads, this state is HUGE. The year I took I-10 all the way home from California (aaaaaaaa .... run for your life!), I realized that Texas alone was 1/3 of my trip. I-10 is 880 miles through Texas - most of it the same color as the Mississippi! I am NOT taking that route tomorrow! I head toward Dallas to see my friend Vicky.
After I got past Atchafalaya, the landscape started to change. I went from the canopy/tunnel of trees that is representative of our swampy part of the country to wide open expanses of dry. The western-most part of Louisiana reminds me of Texas. I am a water baby; once it turns dry and brown, I get restless. Ah well. Only another 2000 miles! (No, really only about 1800.) (HA!)
I am now parked in Winnie, Texas for the evening. At the anti-Beau Rivage. I took a chance and ended up in a really cheesy place. I checked for bedbugs before I decided to stay, though. It's icky, but only for a few hours. At least they have free wi-fi. The Universe is in balance. Winning the cost of my room last night, losing to this crappy room tonight. I can live with that!
Thanks for stopping by.
