Beaches and Bayou Overview

We took a Memorial Day week trip to the beach and then to New Orleans to experience the bayou.  We tagged along with my sister and her family for this trip so a lot of our trip was set by them (we decided we were going after they had already started booking hotels and experiences).

Travel group: Myself (34), my husband (32), our two daughters (7,1), my sister (28), my brother-in-law (30), their daughter and son (5,2).
