Dad and I left Lake City this morning and headed west on Interstate 10. There was a strong but brief thunderstorm as we neared Tallahassee. It was soon over much to my relief and the rest of the afternoon was sunny and warm.
Dad and I stopped at a Gulf coast beach near Pensacola late in the afternoon. The beach was Navarre Beach. The sand here was a dazzling white and the Gulf waters were an emerald green so it was a beautiful spot for both of us to enjoy. Dad body surfed the waves here and I mostly relaxed on the shore.
We continued west along I-10 stopping for the night in Moss Point,Mississippi.
Wed Sept 20
We continued west along I-10 today thru Louisiana. West of Baton Rouge, Interstate 10 traversed an elevated stretch several miles long over a vast swampy area. This was no doubt one of the Louisiana bayous. It projected an eerie feeling of remoteness!
At Lafayette, we took interstate 49 up to Interstate 20 and on into Texas.
We stopped for the night just outside Dallas.
