Well, this Florida native has never been happier to see the "Welcome to Florida" sign. Today I passed through Mobile and made it to Pensacola. I spent the evening with with my Aunt & Uncle and cousins. For this weary traveller, my aunt's homemade macaroni, gravy and sausage was just what I needed for the homestretch!
Welcome to Biloxi! I checked "The Mississippi Queen" into another Pet Resort. She has her own TV which plays Animal Planet 24 hrs., her own Futon Doggie Bed, her window with a view, ... shall I continue?! I am here for two nights. Hopefully the weather will cooperate.
Tonight I did some playing on Bourbon Street. It was sad because alot of the places did not reopen since Hurricane Katrina. Thankfully, Big Al Carson ( http://www.bigalcarson.com/ ) is still perfoming at the Funky Pirate and I got to enjoy some blues.
Last night I had dinner at my favorite restaurant in Metarie and saw some old friends. It was a nice evening. The weather has not be cooperating but I did some sightseeing and shopping before the storms came in.
I made it to New Orleans. I always have so much fun in this City! I have not been back since the Hurricane and I have not had a chance to drive around yet, but I have seen some of the devestation immediately surrounding the City. You can see how the cemetaries were destroyed. The French Quarter is back in action... I can't wait to get to Bourbon Street tonight. I am going to take the trolley to do some shopping at Saks & the Riverwalk!!!
