The sweet Grouch and I are back from a great vacation in New Orleans. Below are a few pictures from the trip. In case you have never been to New Orleans, there is more to the city than Mardi Gras and Super Bowls. The architecture of the homes in the different parts of the city is a feast for the eyes, and the camera. A wide range of cultural and national influences.
New Orleans is world famous for its plethora of unique architectural styles, from creole cottages to the grand mansions on St. Charles, from the balconies of the French Quarter to an Egyptian Revival Customs House and a rare example of a Moorish revival church. The city boasts fine examples of almost every architectural style, from the Baroque Cabildo to the modernist skyscrapers of the Central Business District. (Wiki)
We visited several National Parks and old Forts within a few hours driving distance of New Orleans. In spite of all the rain and heavy fog, we had a wonderful time. I think the fog made for some interesting pictures.
The food was fantastic. Fresh seafood every day. I particularly enjoyed the soft shell crab.
We even had a buggy ride around the French Quarter with Emile our tour guide, and Queen, the mule.
Thanks to all the contributors are Right Truth for picking up the slack and writing fine articles while I was away.
Thanks to sweet hubby for planning such a great trip. I'm truly a lucky girl, to have met, married, and spent my life with my soul mate.
