This is the little post outside Avery Island. The man who waved us through told us that the yellow tape marks how high the flood waters rose after Rita. "And last big one that came through here," he said, "Only came but halfway as high. Not even."
I don't want to give you the impression that we were in Louisiana sight-seeing. Saturday was the only day we took off. I shouldn't have, as I was only in town for the one week, but Volunteer Steve had been working like a dawg for weeks and he needed a fun day. He was a simply awesome social worker from Long Beach, California who had moved to Baton Rouge for a month to help out. What a guy.
