Sailing across the Isle

From the bridge to the barrier island to the drawbridge at the other end the wind was just right to sail over the roadside. Today I was a Sailor with the World being pushed along with me holding and steering with little trouble. Just past the new levy gate in New Orleans area a good family gave me a spot to park and a ride back over the bridge to the van. I think I walked about fourteen miles, not a bad stroll. My new boots are the wide size and my Fred Flintsone toes have room to move. My feet are so wide I have never known what it is like to have a shoe that didn't cram my toes to an unnatural point. All day I practiced spreading them apart, it is a whole new way to step! Tomorrow I will be heading deep into New Orleans. Last summer I walked across the Mississippi at the headwaters in Minnesota, crossing the Big Muddy close to it's mouth, I think, is in order. That may be a couple of days to do, I will take time to enjoy the city and the people as I go.
Love Yourself, walk.
