Craig did some homework the night before our departure and found a route that only took us out of our way by about 160 miles.
|The land was flooded as far as we could see. This was not even a major river crossing.|
|Many of the trees are budding and showing lots of little leaves. Others, like these are still bare.|
|A friendly tree.|
|I bet this tree would have some good stories if it could speak.|
Our reason for a visit to New Orleans, this time, was to eat at Cochon Butcher, another of the restaurants on Craig's Yelp Top 100 list.
Although it gets rave reviews, I found the food to be too salty and too greasy for my taste. But it was one of those places we wanted to experience. Most are unique and wonderful. This one was not.
[From Craig] One of the neat things about full-timing is you can treat a place like New Orleans as a cornucopia of things to do and places to go, or you can stop for a single restaurant if you want to.
Monday dawned cool, crisp, and sunny. A beautiful day to drive. For us, the destinations are important, but the travel between is the adventure.
We are so lucky. Life is good.
