Barbeque infidelity and the "Big Easy"

This Geezer has been a loyal and faithful fan of the Dinosaur Barbeque for ages. Well, move over T-Rex and go to the Shed. The Shed BBQ in St.Martin, MS was the finest I have ever had. Melt in your mouth BBQ, scrumptious side dishes and cold beer served with attitude! Just how the Geezer likes it. Please don't tell the Dinosaur - think of the kids!

I have to admit, I had a hard time leaving Jackson Co, MS today. Did a final drive around the area hit by Katrina and snapped a few more pics. I'll post some in the next day or so.

After about a 2 1/2 hour saunter West on Interstate 10, the Geezermobile made it to Bayou Segenette State Park, just south of New Orleans. After setting up camp, I decided to take the plunge and sample some of Bourbon Street's famous nightlife. Talk about sensory overload! After over 4 weeks of paddling, birdwatching and traveling around the quieter parts of the South, the French Quarter was like being thrown into the Debauchery Hall of Fame. (Debauchery was a French nobleman who came to America in search of plastic beads and loud music) Didn't partake of anything more sinful than 2 dozen Raw Oysters, but then again, I still have tomorrow!
