I hope you are doing well.
I just returned from Pt. Fourchon a few days ago. Yes, swing throu Houston and get on I-10 East. Go to Layfayette, watch for Hiway 90, but you turn right on 637 of 6?? and it says it leads to 90 (and watch out, when you come back it is even more confusing) IT IS 49 TO THE NORTH AND 90 TO THE SOUTH. And all the way South you will see signs "Future I-49 Corridor". Stay on 90 South or East to Hiway No. "La. 1" which is just before you get to Raceland, La. Take a right on Hiway 1. Hiway 1 is an old single 2 lane road that goes through little towns like Lockport, Larose, Cut Off, Galliano and Golden Meadow (all at 35MPH to 45 MPH (School Zones are 15 MPH and there is one every 10 blocks. I HAD PURCHASED A NEW MAP FOR THE TRIP, BUT IT DID NOT SHOW HIWAY 3235, just 1/2 mile West of Hiway 1. PLEASE TRY TO BUY A NEW MAP THAT SHOWS HIWAY 3235. Start looking at Galliano for a turn to the right, or stop and ask (it will save you 1 hour) to get on 3235. It goes straight through Leeville to Pt. Fourchon. WATCH OUT, EVERYTHING IN THE WHOLE WORLD DOWN THERE CLOSES AT 7:00 PM.
To actually get to the marina, I suggest you stop in Leeville at "BOBBY-LYNNS" a convenience store/tackle shop on the left as you enter Leeville (985-396-2678). Ask them for directions to Belle Pass Marina. It is another 8 miles.
The Belle Pass Marina info. is:
CHARLIE HARDISON & SONS, INC.
GOLDEN MEADOW, LA. 70357
While y'all are there, I encourage you to take a "tourist" drive through Grand Isle just to see some of the damage that storm did.
