On Tour with J&B Week 2, 2017
Click on photos to enlarge.
This week we drove from Galveston, Texas, to Montgomery, Alabama —
only 705 miles. Finally slowing the pace down a bit.
Keeping up with the blog as we go down the road.
We’ve taken the wrong fork in the road before, so we stopped to exam this one closely!
Crossing the Mississippi River.
More than 20 miles of highway in and around swamps, weird.
The big Mississip’.
Highway 10 took us over the Atchafalaya swamps and river, for about 20 miles!
Galveston Island Beach.
Galveston historic pleasure pier, only open on weekends, and quite pricy.
Proud Betty and her new bike.
An engineering feat building miles and miles of roads through swamps in Louisiana.
Pontchartrain Landing, a very old, rundown facility.
The approach road to Pontchartrain Landing RV Park. Oh dear.
This is from the Pontchartrain Landing website, it doesn’t look anything like this in reality. I see lots of photoshopped images. Got to be careful.
Very rundown and neglected. Births and deaths dating from the late 1700s to early 2000s. After a short while, John quoted grandson, Nick, “we gotta get outta here, I’m getting creeped out!”
Montgomery, AL — Nice drive from Mobile. All set to play our second round of golf on the RTJ Trail in the morning.
