Houston no more. We drove straight to Houston the first time, 12 hours worth, but not on the way back! I wanted to visit Avery Island and roam around the bayou, but New Orleans called. We snagged a room at the Inn on St. James, ate dinner a Couve and roamed a bit around St. Charles before heading off. Hit Cafe Du Monde, the cathedral and Central Grocery for a mufuletta before stopping by a cemetery on the way out.
