... This being early March, most of the trees along the route were in full bloom with hundreds of strands of brightly coloured beads. Mardi Gras was just a few weeks ago and this must have been a popular route.

I got just a little lost on my walk back to my accommodations and was glad that it wasn't dark ...

The Hotel Modern is only about 1/2 a mile from the train station, and is quite nice. Photos included.
Tomorrow, we get the rental car and head to Pensacola, FL, and some national park sites. The touring begins!
