Today we left from Bay St Louis after staying in the comfort of St. Rose’s center. We had our final ride out along the boardwalk along the Gulf of Mexico for about 10 miles.
We said our goodbyes to where the crawfish sing in Mississippi and headed to the state of Louisiana. The road at the border was open for us bicyclists alone as the road was closed to cars and we were able to enjoy the peace.
The weather is warm; but we were out of the sun by noon. We arrived to the welcoming Christ Episcopal Church in Slidell. Dinner was provided by the church for both us and two families receiving housing support with Family Promises.
We all enjoyed the gumbo as one community. And the gumbo was amazing if you wanted to know.
