I'll Meet You 'Round the Bend, My Friend

"I'll meet you 'round the bend my friend, where hearts 
can heal and souls can mend"*

We're on our way to New Orleans and will be soaking up all the rich textural & visual culture of The Big Easy....to say nothing of sampling her amazing cuisine and fabulous JAZZ! We'll meander along the "third coast", stopping to visit the beautiful old city of Pensacola and the newly-minted urban-planned Gulf Coast communities of Seaside, Alys and Rosemary, then through Apalachicola with her circa 1820 French consulate. We'll return through Hattiesburg, Mississippi and New Orleans.

birth under France; the red, white and blue because she is the
daughter of both the USA and France
