PH OTO J URNAL I MARIO TAMA Saint Patrick Cemetery, Port Sulphur SEPTEMBER 11, 2005 It was nearly two weeks before the roads opened and I could drive down to Port Sulphur, a town south of New Orleans in Plaquemines Parish. I waded through the water to get this picture, and I remember the motion of the waves lapping around me. MARCH 20, 2008 I was glad to come back and see that all the graves were intact after the floodwater receded. This is such a beautiful, peaceful place.
