All in all, the storm  covered a vast area, from at least New Orleans to east of Ocean Springs.

The road we took from the park wasn't too bad.  The railroad crossing was easy when I took it easier.  We got back on to Hwy 90 and proceeded through many small towns.  Signs of the storm were obvious.  Puddles of water and a new thing for us: sand drifted on the highway from the storm.  It was quite interesting driving along this coastal road.  Beautiful, sweeping beaches of white sand dominated the landscape.  The traffic got a bit crazier as we proceeded east.  We've become accustomed to the "fine individuals", but it's always a bit of a surprise when one surfaces.  No close calls today though.  God is Good!

Our GPS Hussy did lead us astray, however, telling us to turn onto a dead end, narrow dirt road with NO turnaround.  I could call her other names, but with all of the technology these days, it could get back to her.  No use taking any chances!  I disconnected Sooby and Lynnie, reluctantly, backed him the quarter mile back to where we could turn around.  She visited with a woman there with a pretty nasty Boxer dog.  He was pretty crippled up, but not to be messed with, according to Lynnie.  The motorhome isn't bad to drive in reverse, since I've had lots of practice on our journey.  We only had to drive a mile or so to find James' place.  It's in the woods, adjacent to a Sandhill Crane Refuge.  We hope to explore that while we're here.  The sun is out now and it's about seventy degrees.  The forecast is for sunny days and no rain, so hopefully we'll get to explore the area while James works.  More tomorrow... stay tuned, y'all.

James just showed up and we're having a great visit.  We decided that it's been about ten year since we've seen each other... He reminds me a lot of his father, my brother, Dick.  The same sense of humor and such.  Lynnie fixed baked codfish with bleu cheese, a recipe of Lisa's.  It was a real treat having our first "dinner guest" in the motorhome.  We had a great visit with lots of humor and shared stories about family, many of which neither of us had ever heard before.  James works in marketing for a casino in Gulf Port.  We made plans to meet for dinner tomorrow night, Thursday, at a casino here in town.  We'll go about our usual exploring tomorrow.
