Exploring Louisiana–The Grand Isle Tour—Final Chapter

Here’s the last chapter of our Grand Isle Tour.  How did you like the post office built off the ground?  I’ve got an idea it’s very convenient at times.

We fell in love with the beautiful flora in Grand Isle so I’ll show you some more pictures.  The first one is a Rubber Tree.  We have grown these in pots before but never have we seen them this size!

I have another picture of a different Rubber Tree that is also larger than the house but that picture didn’t turn out too well.

I kept seeing these beautiful trees and thought they looked familiar but I had to get close to realize they’re Norfolk Island Pines!

Just 2 more pictures and we’ll be done with this tour.  I think this truck has probably been in the water since Katrina.

This crane didn’t seem to care that I was taking his picture.

We headed home via Hwy 1 all the way up to Port Allen and across the Mississippi River bridge to Baton Rouge and then home.  It was an all day trip but one we enjoyed.
