By the time most of you read this, we'll be someplace on I-10 headed east. Live-in Handyman is taking the doggies to the kennel as I type. We don't always make it, but we try to get away at least once a year.
Last year we went to Charleston. You can read about one of the highlights from that trip here.
This year we're going to Mobile. Yes, that Mobile. The one with the oil headed its way. But our trip has been planned for months and is in conjunction with a Coast Guard event.
Mobile is also the birthplace of my live-in handyman. He was a little boy when he left, and although we've been through Mobile many times, we've never stopped. So he's looking forward to this opportunity to see all the places he's only heard about from his parents.
He's not much for flying, though - only if it's a must. Otherwise, he's all about traveling with four wheels on the ground. So we're taking a laid-back approach to getting there this year instead of his "as far as we can get in one day and then some" approach. Mostly because of his ankle. He's not supposed to sit for too long at a time without propping it up for a while.
We plan to spend tonight in Lafayette, Louisiana - in the heart of Cajun Country. I'm looking forward to some fantastic food.
Thursday we'll continue on to Mobile. Then we'll be back home in San Antonio either next Tuesday or Wednesday.
I'll be posting while we're away, but I might need to vary a little from my usual schedule since I don't know what sort of time I'll have or what interesting things I'll have to pass on. And I have to share the laptop. At least it's a new one and not the same clunker from last year that was almost too pooped to even boot up. I'll visit your blogs as I'm able.
Next update ... from the road :)
