    Really felt like I was just living in Joe and Flo's home.
    It is about 15 minutes from Bourbon Street and the rest of the action in a quiet part of town. Close to a couple of really great places to eat (Lil Dizzy's and Cajun Seafoods). Across the highway at night is a little sketchy but no real issues. The rooms are generously sized and comfortably air conditioned. Small common areas and quite a small population of stayers meant the place was nice and quiet. Though they do have 24 hour access and always someone a phonecall away for the night owls. Staff were super friendly and helpful in organising tours and suggesting places to hang out.
    Would definitely recommend, gives you a little escape from the hoopla of Bourbon without being isolated.

    ... and tugboats, and of course several huge bridges connecting between the land and the various waterways. It was a welcome change in scenery.
    The last 30 miles or so was the the typical I-10 rat race into the big city. Almost all of I-10 as you get close to New Orleans is actually a long bridge as almost none of the roadway is on the ground. We're staying at the Courtyard Marriot on Iberville St right next to ...

    We stop for fuel and check the bikes' oil at the same time. Andy's Tenere needs a bit and so does Hattie - I don't think she likes the hot weather that much, but apart from requiring a bit more oil than usual she hasn't complained.

    We head on and pass through Pensacola, home of the US Navy's Blue Angels Aerobatics team. They're not flying today though, so we carry on down the I-10 and cross into Alabama, but ...

    ... crosses the Appalachian Trail. Most folks get a bus to drop them and their bikes off at the start (and the highest point) of the trail called White Top. Then they get an easy free ride downhill all the way to Damascus. There were folks that we met on the trail who you just knew had never been on a bike before! Winter scarves wrapped all around their face and trailing behind them...dangerously close to their back wheel......and my personal favourite was a 60+ dude ...

    ... clearly my dear friends who I have died…many of whom I have never been to a gravesite of. Maybe for those who are left in mourning it is a place where we can go to reflect quietly. A forced reprieve of sorts that the hustle and bustle our ordinary lives does not allow. A moment set aside in memory of one we have loved in a place where we can commune silently with them and ourselves. I, myself, would like rather to ...
