Finally got my camera working on my cell phone.
These are at Biloxi.
We are in New Orleans, Mardi Gras parade cancelled due to weather.
Today: Woke up in Buccaneer State Park to high winds and rain. My tent was blown up after repeated gust, all despite the long stakes. Ended up taking the break in rain and wind to ride out of the park. Made a wrong turn right, ended up at Silver Slipper Casino. We had to hang there as the weather broke loose again. Later found out from the casino staff the entire Gulf coast is under tornado warn til the evening.
A couple of hours passed, seemed the weather was good. Started out on Lake Shore Dr, and ran into brightly colored thick clouds. Darn it!!! We road as far as possible trying to find cover. Luckily, a fellow stopped in his pickup truck. Gave us a ride all the way to New Orleans. One million trillion thank yous to that fellow. He pointed out the hurricane destruction and reconstruction. Funny, he spoke of how the coast use to be inhabited by the average Joe, but now since new house requirements, only the well to-do are build out here. Go figure. We, also, went through one of the new levees. The gate on this thing was thick.
****No pictures, we were riding through severe down pour, flooding, and winds.
Now we have to figure out what to do for the day. I had not originally planned to come here. Before, It was pass through Baton Rouge. The truck driver was going to New Orleans, so that is were we ended up. I am feeling a little sick, too. At the least, this nothing like the start of my trek across America.
Sitting at McDonalds til a plan formulates.
