Heading Westward Ever Westward

Up early and on our way in time to see the sun rise just outside Montgomery, AL












Coming into Mobile, crossing miles of swamp and open water. One river was called "Middle River" I presume because it is in the middle of the Northbound and the Southbound lanes on I-65.




We stopped for a break as we came into Mississippi, and the rest area was also the home of the Stennis Space Center tours.










Who knew the lunar lander was this BIG?


















In Louisiana, deep in Acadia the wildflowers along the road were beautiful.








Miles of rice paddies on the back roads we took from I-10 to our scheduled stop at the Coushatta Casino/Hotel in Kinder, LA.











The grounds are beautiful. So many beautiful flowers and plants, most neatly labeled. The air is warm and balmy with a light breeze.
