Reproduction of the Pioneer which was discovered in Lake Pontchartrain in 1878.
There were many videos about the early days of cargo crossing Lake Pontchartrain to Madisonville. It is one of the oldest permanent settlement in Louisiana founded in 1810 before it was a part of the U. S. So often we heard the term "north shore." During steamship days residents took the ship to New Orleans on Sunday mornings and came back that evening.
We stayed at Gulfport Flying J. We arrived early enough I worked two hours on the blog...trying to get caught up.
