Did a road trip to Texas to visit family. We drove the I 85/ I 65/ I 10 route to Texas. We stopped along the Mississippi gulf coast and enjoyed visiting the Jefferson Davis home- Beauvoir and walking along the beaches in Gulfport and Biloxi. The weather was warm and sunny on our trip out to Texas. The Louisiana DOT closed I 10 thru Baton Rouge on our way to Texas and we had to take over an hour detour on I 110 and US 190 around the city. We never did find out why they closed the interstate thru town that day.
On the way home we went up US Hwy 59 and went thru the towns of Lufkin and Nagocdoches. These are both interesting old Texas towns. We then went to Shrevport and drove I 20 all the way home. We stopped in Vicksburg and enjoyed a quick drive thru town because had been there this summer to tour the battlefield. The weather was very cool and rainy for part of the trip home to Atlanta.
Had a good trip even with the rain and road closures!!
