We're hitting the road again today. We will be heading towards New Orleans to see the sights. Eboney has read a few books that mention the Lafayette cemetery so that will be one of the sights.

The neighborhood around the marina is lovely. Most of the homes have kept their trees, making it seem as if one was in a state park. So I walked the entire neighborhood, looking at homes, docks, fall foliage and the lake. It gave me plenty of time to ponder the odd sign I saw in the ...
... closed in a couple of weeks. This is the last dam before Pickwick Dam which gets us to the Tombigbee Waterway and ultimately to the ocean. So, we might not anchor as much as we had originally intended because we really want to get to the warm weather and the ocean. Guess we will have to make it up for lost time anchoring on the river by spending more time puttering around in the ocean. We are both looking forward to warmer weather.
