about another 250 miles and we reached the coast, did the usual, got the coupon books and found a decent hotel that gave a discount. Works every time, unloaded and headed for the beach and drove along the front for about another 30 miles there and back, westwards towards New Orleans. It was starting to cloud over and get a bit dull although it was 80f so sorry for the "dull" photos, will try better tomorrow, remember the blog is 24 hours behind us.
Loads of boats moored up at the harbour area.
Lovely light house on the shoreline.
It just seemed a very pleasant area, hardly anyone about at around 5-30 pm, perhaps they were all just getting home from work, not like us, on holiday without a care in the world.
The beautiful white sandy beach reminded us of Florida which is where we will be in a few days time.
I was surprised to see a kite surfer all on his own but he had found enough wind to ride backwards and forwards just offshore. Hope we will see plenty more in Tampa Bay at the weekend.
If you notice the Sat Nav I is set 12 hours out, I would not want you to think that we were roaming around very early in the morning. The point of this photo is to show you the screen when we set off to go back to the hotel after parking on a land spit used by fisherman.
So ........ after driving across the sea I simply turned right onto the highway and drove for 0:34 hours arriving at 6:47 am (pm).
In reality we stopped off tea/supper and were back about 8 pm. Only been driving around for nearly two weeks 12 hours out, still we are on holiday and we know what the time is.
A place not covered by a G P S.
Thanks to you all for looking.
nite nite, Luv Mike XX
