3/10 What a day!!!!!

We all got up early and began our journey at Waffle House--a real treat for Cindy and Eric since they'd never been to one before. Then we drove west on Beach Boulevard, all the way to New Orleans. What a jaunt!

In N.O. we went to one of the above ground cemeteries and also went to Musicians' Row, a rebuild project spearheaded by Harry Connick, Jr.

On the way home we stopped at High Cotton Grill for a very late lunch. By the time we got back to my house it was almost time for Lorena, Genia, and Caroline to come over. We played cards for a few hours. It was a good time. And after they left, Jan, Cindy, Eric and I played euchre. It had been a long time since I'd played, but it came back to me pretty quickly.

And one of the best parts of my day was getting my car detailed. No dog hair, at least for a few days.

Tomorrow we're driving to Mobile and will take the car ferry over Mobile Bay and drive to Pensacola, Florida. Lots of beauty on the way.

The most important thing is that Eric is having a great time. And he's taken some wonderful pictures.

Oh, I almost forgot--Genia knows Eric's girlfriend. She went to high school with Genia's daughter. Un-freaking-believable.

More fun tomorrow.

Sounds like an awesome time!! I would have loved to have seen those above ground cemetaries. I have seen them on TV before.

I am SOOOOO incredibly jealous that you are going to Pensacola!! Say HI to Dianna for me!!

Eric had better post a LOT of pics on his blog, no more of this one a week thing! :)

Hey there*!*
If you guys want some ideas for where to grab a bite or whatever around here, I'll be glad to throw some your way...have a great trip!

Dianna...your "home" is one of the most amazing places I've ever seen. We went down to Pensacola Beach and walked out on a huge pier. The sand was like walking in sugar, and the gulf is incredible. We had a great time today even though the ferry was closed and Eric had looked so forward to it. On to New Orleans for the French Quarter tomorrow.

(Kelly, you can not IMAGINE the great artistic photo's ERic has taken)

Thanks, Kelly and Dianna. We had a super time, and thanks for the offer of help. Alas, we got it too late. :) More tomorrow.
