Postcards from the Journey - Day Fourteen

On the last day of the trip, we drove from Nashville to Baton Rouge, LA.  

Somewhere in Mississippi we saw a Civil War enactment right next to the highway.

In Baton Rouge we're staying at the Fairfield Marriott at last!   I knew we'd get to stay at another one on this trip.  We ate at “Boutin’s” to the tunes of a zydeco band.  We were both too tired to get out on the dance floor, but it was very tempting!

We conversed (again!) with a 70-year old Cajun man who was in charge of 200 Red Cross volunteers helping our with Mississippi flood victims.  He was showing a black couple how to “suck tail.” 

So it was not only full circle with the trip – Mike toasted our adventure with the same Amber beer he drank on the first day of our journey.  I met his toast with my bottle of root beer.
Indeed, we’ve come full circle – TYJ!
