Daily Prompt: Journey
by michelle w. on May 26, 2013
Tell us about a journey — whether a physical trip you took, or an emotional one.
I would have to write a book is I wrote about my emotional journey, so I will choose a physical trip.
I’ve already written my honeymoon trip through the Blue Ridge Mountains of Georgia. My last big trip happened about four years ago. I had a 4-Day conference to attend in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. My youngest daughter, just turned 21, had never been to Louisiana. My hubby couldn’t get off work, so my daughter and I set out. We had a great time driving into Baton Rouge. We played the radio loud and sang along; something we had always done together.
She had her car and was able to explore Baton Rouge while I attended classes at the conference. She would book tours for us and when I got out of classes we would go tour whatever she had booked. We toured an art museum, gardens, and a plantation.
On our last day, the entire conference group was taken by bus to New Orleans. We toured the areas that were stricken by Katrina. Such a devastation to see even after several years.
Around dark, we were let loose on Bourbon Street. We ate dinner, shopped, had drinks at a bar while listening to a live band. We even let loose and danced some. It was a wonderful time and I’m thankful we had the opportunity to vacation a bit, just the two of us.
I had spent a month in New Orleans, when my oldest daughter was 6 years old. Her father was working in New Orleans and I had a cousin that lived there, so we had a good time visiting family, taking the kids to the zoo, and hitting Bourbon Street several times, without the kids, of course. My youngest daughter and I had taken the train from Alabama to New Orleans. That was not a pleasant experience. Her father drove us back to Alabama when he got a 3 day weekend.
