Heading Down to the Spill

We're heading down through Plaquemines Parish today to see what we can see.

Without a boat, we'll likely only have a chance to encounter landed oil from Empire to Venice immediately west of the levee (the red marks near the word "Venice" on the image above).

Other items on the calendar in NOLA today:

The Inaugural New Orleans Oyster Festival in the Quarter

Krewe of Dead Pelicans

Freret Street Market
