Tarballs and Long Hauls

'It's not a vacation place anymore. It's a ground zero.'



In February, Grand Isle is supposed to start looking a little more life-like. Birds and tourists are scheduled to make their annual flock to the Jefferson Parish barrier island to seek refuge before the their natural habitat in the North comes back to life.
