Day 5

Another rainy day - we've now crossed two states (Texas and Louisiana) and are into a third (Mississippi) without a glimpse of the sun. Rain and flooding have been wide spread, which has put a damper on our outdoor activities. Today we did manage to do a little (very little) walking in Vicksburg, Mississippi, - we looked at murals painted on the levies along the Mississippi River and then stopped by the Vicksburg National Military Park - the site of a pivotal Civil War battle. Sorry, no pictures of the Park - it was raining big time. The town and park both deserve more time, but that will need to wait until next time.
