Well, I made it ALMOST the entire day without rain! It started raining just as I pulled up to the motel But it didn't last long, and all is dry (although humid) now. Today was FUN! I left LaFayette and headed for New Orleans. For those of you who KNOW me - you KNOW how I HATED all the bridges - made a wrong turn coming into New Orleans, and ended up on this HORRIBLE us 90 bridge - then had to turn around and come back across it to get back - and - get this - they CHARGED a toll to get back! It just don't seem right..... But New Orleans was a blast. I wondered around the French Quarter,shopped, stopped at Cafe Du Monde and had beignets - which is 'the thing' to do in New Orleans - it is an open-air cafe. Really nice. Now, what to do with the stuff I bought - bike is jam-packed already. No worry - I have bungies!!!!! te he eh. Unfortunately, I did not realize walking in that heat/humidity was getting to me till I got back to the bike - dizzy, headache - tell-tale signs of dehydration - well, a quart of gatorade and some icing down and I felt much better. Off to Mobile. Got checked in - gotta worry though - maybe not the best neighborhood when this is what you see on the inside of our hotel room door. Went to find food and guess what I found? FedEX - problem solved! Stuff shipped back home. Tomorrow should be fun - I will make it to Florida to see the kids! Really looking forward to it.....
