A few last pics from my last day on the Gulf Coast before heading back to California... I made the mistake of not getting any Barbecue Shrimp while in New Orleans because I mistakenly assumed it was a broader regional thing, so we stopped at one of the only places we found it in Mississippi. It was perfect. After getting caught in unexpected traffic and almost missing my flight last time I was there (not that I would have minded), we headed into New Orleans plenty early this time. With the extra time to spare, we stopped for beignets at Cafe du Monde, which in all the times I've been to New Orleans, I had always avoided just assuming it was a tourist trap. We had time for one last swan song beer in Nawlins, and then it was time to head home.
