On the Road Again

30 Apr

We are on our first real road trip since my last trip to Texas. This time we have planned the B&B stops and aren’t pulling a trailer of any type. A trip just for fun is such a novel thought!

The drive down to Lafayette, LA was uneventful but surprising in the lush landscape. We have green grass that has grown very quickly and the trees have leafed out but we don’t have wall to wall trees and lots of underbrush. Long before we reached Interstate 20, we would tell we were in the upper sections of the Piney Woods. The foliage was a solid mass of varying shades of green from light lime to deep dark green.

The B&B in Lafayette was nice and had a very nice garden complete with jasmine in bloom and a cat who always came to greet us at the gate. Now in New Orleans our room opens to a tropical courtyard. I love the soft brick and teak benches. Today we are off the French Quarter for lunch and then to the botanical gardens. Hope the thunderstorms hold off.
