Woke up early and packed up the car.  I swear, we get better at it every day.
Dustin did the laundry last night so all of our clothes were clean.
Drove out to Houston, TX and made a side trip to Gatlin's BBQ on the North end of town.  The cashier was as sweet as marmalade and the bbq was SO good! 
Elaine got pulled pork and braised beef.
Dustin got deer sausage and chicken.
plates came with a side of pickles, hot peppers and onions.
sides we shared: dirty rice, beans, cole slaw, green beans, potato salad
We had enough for lunch AND dinner.

Continued driving East.  Finally hit Louisiana.  Sat through traffic in Baton Rouge.
Arrived at S. Bernadotte with Billy waiting for us on his porch.  The room we are renting is in Midtown, at the end of the Canal Streetcar.  We are surrounded by beautiful cemeteries :D
Our room has a four poster queen w/ memory foam.
He gave us a bottle of wine, fresh oranges and lemons from the garden, crouisants, peach and fig jelly, butter, whole cream, and chicory coffee. 

We shared a glass of wine on the tree house, overlooking a 300 year old cemetery.
