We drove through New Orleans without really seeing anything other than bridges, more bridges, water and the freeway. We were headed a couple hours south of New Orleans to Grand Isle Louisiana. Grand Isle is a small settlement at the end of a very long and narrow peninsula. There is a state park at the very end of this land strip. It is a beautiful park and a nice place to spend some down time. Other than spending time on the beach and a few small hikes there is little else to do.
We will be leaving here on Tuesday and heading to New Orleans where we plan to spend a week.
The following are some pictures from our time at Grand Isle.
