Houston, TX to New Orleans, LA

We woke up the morning after our show in Houston, and said goodbye to Anne Sofie Kluge Hedegaard. We still had over 400 miles of pedaling to reach New Orleans, much of it along the coast.

Crossing into Galveston, TX via I-45 bridge on bikes is allowed.

There is a free ferry ride from Galveston to Bolivar Peninsula, operating 24/7.

There are plenty of great camping spots along the Gulf Coast. A close nighttime observer at the coast can see waves glowing electric blue on clear nights at the beach.

We headed East along the coast, opting to ride about 20 miles on the beach through McFaddin National Wildlife Refuge, where an old highway has been abandoned. 

As we continued East, we enjoyed the expanses of, RockefellerMandalay, and Bayou Teche Widlife Refuges,

with beautiful cypress swamps

and moss hanging from humongous oak trees.

We arrived in New Orleans via the levee along River Road. 

Another free ferry ride, this one from Gretna, LA into downtown New Orleans.

We held an interactive concert at RUBARB in New Orleans.

To finish off the tour, we played Saturn Bar in New Orleans, along with Travis Bird and Rotten Milk.
