Bridge over a Bayou

Thanks to *Louis* over at San Francisco for hosting the "Bridges" series. Please stop by his place and see all the lovely bridges!
This photo is from the air as we flew into New Orleans. This bridge is part of the interstate highway if one would chose to drive to New Orleans. It is hard to drive in New Orleans as it is hard to orient to anything. Due to all the water around New Orleans, it gives a whole new meaning on how to find north, south, east or west! Enjoy all the bridges today!

A New Orleans courtyard

This was the courtyard out our hotel room. We had a nice balcony that we could sit and watch the activity around us. Bourbon street was just on the other side but this was very tranquil indeed.

New Orleans!

No, I didn't go to Mardi Gras but we were in New Orleans last week. We had lovely weather and saw many things. This is where one can catch the free ferry to go across the river from New Orleans to 2 other small cities. We missed the free ferry so I only have the "port" waiting room to share!

Almost Heaven, West Virginia

This is a picture off my mom's back porch. She lives in West Virginia (where I grew up) and I just love this shot..
The river is called the Coal River. It dumps into the Kanawha River which goes to
the Ohio River which then empties into the mighty Mississippi. Coal River got its name due to a coal mine at the mouth of the river emptying all of the coal dust into it and the river turning black. The mine has been closed for decades but the name stayed.
