The Derby Match between the Baton Rouge Red Sticks and the Hattiesburg Hooligans was at 6:00, so we had just a little time to relax before the match. We met niece Megan and Drew (the newly engaged) and walked down the river front to the match.
The B team that Erin plays on won their match! None of my inside pictures came out and the ones outside were poor.
Sunday morning, we played with the kids in the pool, then walked to a pizza place for lunch.

We missed one of our last opportunities to take the ferry; the John James Audubon Bridge will be completed soon, and the ferry will cease to exist. Although the bridge will be much faster, I hate the thought of the ferry crossings becoming a thing of the past. The width and power of the Mississippi is best viewed from crossing on the ferry. A charm that will soon be a thing of the past. Here is a link to a blog post about the ferry and memories of a retired ferry captain.
The other thing we had planned to do was to see Hemingbough, where Megan and Drew will be married in March. Maybe next time we go to B.R., we can spend the night in St. Francisville at one of the historic B&B's and find Hemingbough.
