Once the stray sand is swept up and the cheesy DisneyWorld magnet is hung on the fridge ... we will have lots of memories:
  • 14 vacation days

  • 3,000 miles

  • 8 states

  • 0 speeding tickets (1 near miss ... whew!)

  • 1 ocean

  • 1 gulf

  • 3 new tastes (shark, gator, grouper)

  • 2 fishing trips (baby shark - bonnet head and white, red fish, flounder)

  • 2 theme parks

  • lots of family, and

  • tons of fun
This family will now go back to it's regularly-scheduled programming.

We passed by some hurricane damage mainly west of Biloxi ... lots of twisted and uprooted trees and a couple of beached boats. Saw a few "trailer" towns and a salvage yard of flooded cars. Sad reminders.

The visitor center's on I-10 are "done up" like southern mansions ... complete with friendly hosts serving cold drinks and Elvis.

More photos later ...

... the internet access at this hotel is very slow and we are unable to download photos. Will try to add later. Tomorrow? Driving from Atlanta to Jacksonville!

Missed Mississippi

Ran out of battery as we crossed into Mississippi ... will have to get a photo on the return trip. Very beautiful countryside as we passed through Tupelo into Alabama. The highway we were on had a sign saying "future I-22 Corridor." Does anyone know what is up with that?
