It was an early night, The Wyoming Cowgurl had been up since 2:30am and I'd been up since 4:30, but we did walk up Royal and Bourbon Streets before heading back to our hotel room.
A quick transfer in the French Quarter to the St Charles trolley and I was off on a new adventure. Many beautiful and expensive homes are along this street. The Auduban Zoo, and Tulane University are in this area as well.
While waiting for the yarn shop to open I went to Jackson Square and enjoyed the warm morning.
The Cowgurl was free after lunch so we hopped on the trolley and rode out to the Museum of Art.
Monday we went to the Ruby Slipper (At the reopening after Katrina it's said they sat around the cafe saying, "There's no place like home, there's no place like home" resulting in the name.) I had a salad with candied pecans, red onion, bacon, and goat cheese hush puppies with a vinaigrette dressing. The best meal while I was there, I think!
The Dukes of Dixieland are Natchez standards.
The New Orleans Skyline.
Some local folk enjoying the evening cruise.
At one time this factory produced 800,000 tons of sugar a year.
An old cotton mill.
A lovely evening and a lovely trip!
On the way to the airport the next day I took a quick picture of the Super Dome for The Tiger, cause he's a super kid!
