Louisiana at Last!

This is just a short post to let our beloved readers know that we have arrived safe and sound in Louisiana! Crossing over from Mississippi, the rains and wind continued unabated for most of the day, but that didn't stop us from visiting the quaint town of Abita Springs, just north of Lake Pontchartrain, and we are now happily parked at Fountainbleau State Park.

Tomorrow, with clear weather in the forecast, we will bicycle on the nearby rail trail, go see the lake, and then head a few hours west to the town of Lafayette, where we will have the pleasure of seeing a number of Mary's Louisiana cousins. Mary's mom Lydia was born in New Orleans, and Lydia and Mary's father Bill met in New Orleans while attending Loyola University, so the family history and blood run thick here in bayou country.

More news will be forthcoming as our adventures continue, and please be sure to see the videos and stories in our most recent posts below.
