Cain't go no mo...

Today's our last day in New Orleans and our last day near the Mississippi River. We head out tomorrow through Texas and home. Mama took us out to lunch today to Lüke, a John Besh restaurant. It was as good as the last time we ate there. Alan had three kinds of fresh made sausage, Mama had an oyster dish and a snail dish and I had a soft shell crab, bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich. Once again we skipped dinner!

After lunch the three of us went to visit my Aunt Elise. Aunt Elise is my Dad's sister and is 99+ years old. She is totally together and we argue politics a lot! It's always fun to see her.

After dropping Mama back at her apartment, we came back to the B&B where Alan is now watching the 4th game of the World Series.

Since this is the end of our time on the Mississippi River, I wanted to include a picture from the mouth of the River. When we were in New Orleans last April we rode down there on a day when the weather was much more pleasant and warmer and much less windy.

Tomorrow it's on to Texas. Good bye, Mississippi River, you've been a great traveling companion and we will see you soon to explore your northern half.
