Continuing my photo safari...
We left New Orleans after New Years:
And headed north into Louisiana across Lake Pontchartrain:
Passed a big fire:
Stopped in Baton Rouge:
Drove across an amazing causeway through bayous:
Browsing Wikipedia (mobile internet is great!) I found the Diamond Grill in Alexandria where we had a nice dinner:
Crazy store next door:
The next morning we headed north to see my old friend Lee Ellen, with a brief stop in Natchitoches:
Lee Ellen recommended the amazing Herby-K's in Shreveport (home of the shrimp buster) for lunch:
This place was in an interesting neighborhood:
We met Lee Ellen and stood on three states at once (Louisiana, Texas, and Arkansas--my first time in Arkansas!):
We had a nice visit with Lee Ellen in Atlanta, Texas, and then headed back across through Arkansas:
We crossed back into Louisiana, had some amazing BBQ that Lee Ellen provided us, crossed into Mississippi (my first time here!) and ended up in Vicksburg for the night:
We heading out again this morning, not sure yet where we will end up tonight....
