Blog entry #6 (March 27, 2004) Bayou Tour, Pearlington, MS.


Jeep inspection and maintenance having been completed, Jean and I headed off for a guided tour of bayou country east of New Orleans.  That evening, on our way back to Biloxi, I could not resist pulling into a well-aged junk yard that I had spotted on the way to bayou country to see if there might be an old Jeep wagon rotting away somewhere.  There we meet Brian and Brian, proprietors of Owl’ s salvage yard.  No Jeeps, but the conversation covering local lore was well worth the stop.  We topped the evening off by a visit to one of the local casinos.  Jean, in a rare moment of wild abandonment, dropped a total of 30 cents in the slots and we called it a night.
