Real NOLA

So this morning we opted to get some laundry done. We neglected it for long enough and although it wouldn’t normally be needed since we exploded our milk all over the van we had only a few towels to mop it up with and they were due for a wash. So we spent the better part of the morning...

Bead Town

Sleeping in the city can be tricky sometimes you can’t always pick your perfect spot. Last night we with an intense lean, so much so it was almost feels like Dr. Seuss with everything slightly off kilter. Even lying in bed was uncomfortable because you’re fighting gravity a bit.We...

Mardi madness

So you have to do it once in life but it is definitely madness. We’re still on Florida time so we were up especially early in the morning. Parades started at 8 we were wandering down St. Charles avenue at around 7:30am. Some people had definitely been there for hours and had their whole...

Loony Lundi

Driving the final stretch today we made it to New Orleans just in time. We quickly discovered the roads here are awful and the van was being bounced around like mad. We’ve been hearing a distinct a scraping sound whenever we hit a really hard bump which makes us concerned it’s our...

Mini Gras

We’re planning on seeing a bit of the Mardi Gras festivities today in Biloxi, MS based on a suggestion from a couple we met back in Ocala, Florida. They had been coming for about 10 years so we figured it had to be half decent. Since the parade was scheduled for the afternoon so we had...

Puppy love

Driving out of the National Park we passed a little “farmers” market which we checked out. They weren’t really selling produce – more like, knitted goods and crafts plus some cookies and cakes. They were also adopting out puppies which, of course, could not go...

Coverin Ground

We’ve not done much else today but work and drive. We checked out Tallahassee for a bit, and then went to the Apalachicola National Forest for the evening, catching a sight of the sun just as it was setting over the Camel Lake. We’re enjoying the National Forests in Florida...

Toll-rific

So we’re doing a fair bit of driving today. We’re definitely on the northern route – seeing more Ontario plates in a day than we have all trip. We opted to hug the coast but stick to major roadways which means we hit a couple toll roads. Unfortunately we’ve found that...

Barefoot Beach

We said good-bye to our friend today. We intended on only staying a day but when you have such good company, good food, all in a great setting; why would you want to leave? Before leaving the Naples area we managed to see the beautiful Barefoot Beach Рone of the gems in the area. Whats...

Splish-splash

So we had quite a bit of work to catch up on today but were able to do most of it at our friends house – all while being extremely well fed with lots of good company, out in the sunshine. We also jumped in the pool for a bit of a swim. It’s hard to believe it’s the first of...
