Beignets and Cafe au Lait at Cafe du Monde

Following the Blues in New Orleans

Fishing poles and Blues. Peanut butter burgers and baked potatoes. Straw hats. Daiquiris and cover bands on Bourbon. Shrimp po-boys. The way everything smells after the rain. Beignets and cafe au lait. Decatur and Esplanade. Street art for sale. Haunted tours at night. One of my favorite books, 14,000 Things to Be Happy About, reads just like […]

Good Times in Galveston

We spent last week in Galveston, TX. Looking back, I have to say it was possibly my favorite stop during our RV journey so far.

Yes, this is Meriwether’s birthplace. For those new to the blog, Meriwether is the name of our 2004 40′ Diesel Tiffin Motorhome, […]
