Today we had the long drive in from Dallas, TX to Louisiana. We have plans to be in New Orleans Tuesday and Wednesday night, so today the goal was to get somewhere fairly close to New Orleans so the drive tomorrow will be short and sweet. However, that made today’s drive very long (7 hours!).
Things that were exciting thus far in Louisiana:
– Lightning storms and rain so hard I couldn’t see out the window while I was driving
– Swamps the color of Shrek
– White birds flying around that are not sea gulls
– Roadkill armadillos
I saw so many dead armadillos today, my new goal is to find a live one. Or an alligator. And I’d like to take pictures of a swamp. And a bayou. I’d also like to learn what a bayou is. And eat more fried catfish. Yum.
