On our way to New Orleans we stop in Montgomery AL at the First White House of the Confederacy - 13 Apr 2017
One of the bedrooms in the White House where Jefferson Davis lived
Cute 'Do Not Disturb' sign in our hotel room
We arrive in New Orleans and meander through town. This is Lafayette Square.
Our first morning in NOLA we take a bike tour of the city. This is our tour guide Cathy who was great fun. - 14 Apr 2017
Inside the St. Louis Cathedral which we visited on our bike tour.
More of the cathedral. There has been a church on this site since 1721.
Jackson square from the front of the cathedral. The apartments on the top floor ahead are rent controlled and less than $1000/month. The waiting list is 10 years.
Lafitte's Blacksmith Bar - used as HQ for their smuggling operation in the mid 1700s.
Colorful but wonky B&Bs. Can't tell from here but trust me, the green building is very askew.
St. Louis cemetary #1. The crypts on the left are for less affluent individuals or if your crypt is too full.
A more affluent section of the cemetary
Same pic of us with the beautiful park in full view.
Nick and I in the City Park
Louis Armstrong park
After our cycle tour we walk to Cajun Seafood and buy 6 pounds of seafood and some beer. YUM!!
An hour later, there is only crawfish carnage.
We walk around and admire the "art". Not sure I need a giant purple chimpanzee painting.
The lovely courtyard of Pat O'Brien's where we stop for a couple of drinks on our way back from the seafood place.
On our way to the comedy club we admire a pirate ship wheelchair at a convenience store.
Saturday morning and Nick checks out where we are going. This is the lobby bar of our terrific hotel, Old No. 77. - 15 Apr 2017
Bacon bloody Mary at the Ruby Slipper - amazing nreakfast!!
Pork and Chicken Benedicts. SOOOO good.
We take the trolley to the Garden District. These are the colours we are considering for our Daufuskie house.
Love the ironwork!
Lafayette Cemetary - lots of films were made in this cemetary
More spooky than the Louis cemetary which is maintained by the church.
Love the old walls
Just more pretty house features. Do we need stairs like this on Daufuskie?
More gorgeous ironwork
On Nick's birthday we visit the National WWII museum. It's an amazing museum!
More of the museum
The main house at the Laura Plantation, on the Mississippi river about an hour from New Orleans - 17 Apr 2017
More of the plantation. Very interesting place, a great tour.
Another old building on the plantation. The plantation grew sugar cane.
