New Orleans is one of my favorite cities. Ron and I honeymooned in New Orleans 48 years ago. Seems like only yesterday. We have managed to make it back every 3 rd or 4 th year. New Orleans is the same old town with a lot of new items. We were a little hesitant to come to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina but the French Quarter didn't show much wear and tear. The founders of NO were smart enough not to build the French Quarter in low lying land. They didn't have any flooding here, but oh so close. It reminds me a lot of Key West, but oh so much bigger!!!
Ron is recovering from a knee replacement and quite frankly I thought going up the stairs to the airplane in Key West along with navigating the gigantic Atlanta airport were going to be nightmares; Ron did very well and other than being really tired, he is fine. But then, I'm tired too and my knee is fine.
We got to the hotel early and our room wasn't ready - not surprising. We spent part of our time waiting in the bar in the hotel. Great time to watch the crowd move by. Gin and Tonics were so good. An even more exciting crowd than you can see on Duval Street in Key West.
Got our room; rested a bit went back downstairs and decided to eat at Desire. Newly removed oyster and seafood bar. We had shrimp PoBoys. They were great. Than back to our rooms. We'll get an early start tomorrow. Checked with pet sitter; our furry kids are fine!!!!
I generally don't spend much time photographing the sky from the airplane, but today was different. These little clouds looked like a pet had destroyed a foam pillow. Enjoy!
