Unexpected signs and encounters throughout a business travel roadtrip

 

The fact that I love road trips is a given.  I have been combing through my Louisiana photos and finding more and more to my delight. In the land where the big easy exists it is easy to forget there is more to Louisiana than New Orleans. Although, admittedly, New Orleans is a delightful universe onto itself.

 

In this last installment of my New Orleans photo series, here are some fun photos of “unexpected” sightings in my road trip adventure across the diagonal length of Louisiana.

 

First off, when I think of Louisiana, I think swamps. Therefore I think of things that swim. I had never thought of black bears hanging out in Louisiana.

I always love odd signs near cemeteries.

Then you can go to the Paw shop (pawn shop I assume)

Then a nice fruit stand at the gas station. I suppose this occurs in many places. I just don’t equate the two.

Lastly, let’s revisit the other side of the cemetery.
