After dropping off Elroy at the airport (snif), we got on a plane with all of our stuff and headed to Texas. We spent the first two nights at the beach, then headed off towards New Orleans. We stopped in Beaumont for one night to see one of Mack and Melanie's favorite local bands. The next day we drove on the same, straight, low bridge over swampy areas for about 10 million hours. It was really fascinating to see this kind of land ... but it was so foreign to me. We had amazing Cajun food along the way, and went to a special fried seafood place for dinner in New Orleans the first night.

We went for beignets in the French Quarter the first night. They were delicious (and covered in a bucket of powdered sugar).

Moppy flew into town on Sunday morning and we went to Brennan's for a lovely, fancy breakfast. That afternoon we toured the Garden District. In the evening we went to the casino. I doubled my money within 10 minutes, cashed out, and walked away. (Ok, I only spent $5 ... but I doubled it! And then I spent it on a glass of wine.)
