After the tour, we headed over to Oak Alley Plantation, where several movies have been filmed, including "Interview with the Vampire." It's a beautiful old home, but the real highlight is the alley of oak trees which lead up to the house.
Upon leaving there, we decided to follow radio announcements to a nearby town to see "Boogie on the Bayou," which we had hoped would be a good chance to hear some local music, especially since the main attraction was a band called "Snapper and the Fishsticks." Unfortunately, Snapper was a rock cover band, so we didn't stay too long.

After three days in New Orleans, it was time to head back home. We made our way back north, stopping to stay in Atlanta and Richmond before stopping in Washington, D.C. to visit the Mette-Bory family.
For fun, we tried to take pictures of all the state signs we passed along our 3,200 mile trip.
