Kathy & I are wrapping up our latest adventure and heading back to base tomorrow. Lots of photos and more than a few interesting experiences that should give me grist for the mill for a few weeks.
We have been to the airport in Newark before but decided that doesn’t count as a “visit.” We’re spending a few days here before heading south to Virginia Beach and then home.
Delaware – check!
No Saltwater Taffy for us today – we opted for fresh cut French Fries instead. They were authentic and delicious! 😉
Kathy & I checked Maryland off our list today. Actually we had been to Maryland before but decided it didn’t qualify because we didn’t have photographic evidence. We have plenty now!
Kathy & I are finishing up our time in Carolina Beach, North Carolina before heading up the coast with visits to VA, MD, DE and NJ. This is just a sample of the photos I have found from our visit. More to come!
I lucked into this scene yesterday morning as we were entering the Parkway. We never saw him again so I didn’t have a chance to see more of the car.
Kathy & I spent a couple of nights in Natchez, Mississippi before starting off on the Natchez Trace Parkway. Natchez sits on a 200 foot bluff overlooking the Mississippi River. We spent a lot of time walking and watching the barge traffic on the river. The river is high and a few roads are closed, but we didn’t see anything serious.
On to Natchez, Mississippi today. Here is a sunset photo from last evening after our swamp tour.
In addition to being the home of Tabasco, Avery Island is home to Jungle Gardens, a 170-acre semitropical garden that stretches along Bayou Petite Anse. Jungle Gardens was created by Edward Avery “Ned” McIlhenny. Born on Avery Island in 1872, Ned was an arctic explorer, naturalist and conservationist.
Today, Kathy & I are in Lafayette, Louisiana where we toured the Tabasco plant in Avery Island and took a swamp tour, then capped off the day with a visit to a roadhouse with Cajun music and fresh seafood. Louisiana is an interesting place!
