Looking back towards Beach Blvd and the casinos in Biloxi.
Thanksgiving dinner aboard Folie A Deux.
Not Biloxi, but back by popular demand:
Point Cadet is a nice marina close to the casinos and yacht club on Beach Blvd in Biloxi. This will be home until after the 2012 New Year when we return to start our east bound journey to FL.Point Cadet Marina, Biloxi, MS
Downtown New Orleans.
One of our vicarious crew members watched us live as we went under the bridge on a web-cam mounted under the bridge.
Headed for the Harvey Locks, eastbound to the River.
This was our last stop before Biloxi and because of weather we spent two days in New Orleans and left on Thanksgiving Day for our final push.Seabrook Marina, New Orleans, LA
We anchored just across the ICW from Lake Salvador about 20 miles from the Harvey Locks so we could get an early start to manage the Harvey and Industrial locks in case we were backed up by traffic.Bayou Perot, LA Anchorage
We got in after dark to the city docks downtown in Morgan City only to find out the next morning that the locks were closed all day for maintenance. Fortunately, Greg Heck, traveling on our buddy boat, Folie A Deux knew of an alternate route. Some people think these fog pictures are great, not the Captains. It is a lot like the childhood game of Rock, Paper and Scissors except out here it is Rock, Plastic and Steel and rocks and steel boats and steel barges beat plastic boats every time.Morgan City, LA City Docks
Etoile waits for her turn to fuel after Folie A Deux finishes fueling at Martins since Shell Morgan is closed on Sundays.
Intercoastal City is not a city but an industrial park for the petroleum industry. There is lots of commercial traffic and when we arrived after dark I had limited night vision and gave the lead to Folie a Deux with six good eyes onboard.Intercoastal City, LA Shell Morgan Docks
Shell Island is an anchorage right off the ICW on the Texas - Louisiana border. It is a good stopping point for boats our speed between Galveston and Intercoastal City, LA.Shell Island, TX Anchorage
