Leaving Sulphur, LA at 8:00 A.M., Ricardo and I made a quick ride to Meridian, MS.  Across the Atchafaya Swamp with it's pristine beauty, clouds rolling in the sky,  what a great day!  Four hundred miles later, we are once again in a nice hotel.  An dinner tonight!  Homemade chili, a Caesar's salad and all of the free chocolate chip cookies we could eat...........and free, did I say that?

Tomorrow we have a short ride to Birmingham, AL where we will stop for a couple of days.  After all, I have family there...the only challenge is "how can I keep Ricardo on his good behavior for two whole days?"
