2012 Trip - Day 1 - October 3

After 3 years we have finally gotten back to New Orleans. The driving always goes smooth until we get to Mississippi and then it "seems like" it takes longer to cross that state than driving through Georgia or Alabama. I don't know if it's because it's the last state before getting to Louisiana or if it just comes near the end of a long drive (11 hours from Taylors, SC). 

After getting the car unloaded and parked (yay! we got a good spot) and doing a little bit of unpacking we went out to find something for supper. Wanted something good, since on the road we had a Hardee's sausage biscuit (too much biscuit, not enough sausage) and some Taco Bell (not great, but one of the few fast food joints I can abide). 

As shown in the opening photo, we decided on Acme Oyster House. The line was fairly long and we had to wait about 30 minutes to get seated, but it was worth the wait. We ordered the Boo Fries (fries with roast beef gravy and cheese) (4.99) and of course a dozen char-broiled oysters (19.49). This meal was so good, it almost made it worth the drive through Mississippi :-)
