The Big Easy

We had a great time in New Orleans last weekend.  My first visit did not disappoint.  I love the architecture and culture, and of course the food.  It actually reminds me a lot of Charleston.  I wish we were there longer than 48hrs.  We will definitely be making a trip back this spring.

I finally got my camera back, and have realized that my phone takes better pictures.  I have had this camera for a while (it only has 6 megapixels), so way past time to upgrade.  I'm hoping to get a new one for Christmas (hint, hint).

We passed by the basketball arena and the Superdome on our way from the airport to the hotel.

We all stayed at the Hotel Monteoleone which is a beautiful hotel on Royal Street in the French Quarter.

  We had a great time just walking up and down Bourbon Street...  

 and collecting beads...

and drinking.


St.Louis Cathedral during day
and at night-- this picture does not do it justice. 

Better picture- fotolibra

Music was everywhere...

...even in the artwork.

The food was great.  We had a birthday brunch for my grandmother's 90th at Court of Two Sisters.  The food was amazing.  I tried duck for the first (and last time).

I don't know how many times we passed by this store, but the cat was always sleeping.

 There were a lot of weddings that weekend. We passed by this beautiful reception.

 I took so many pictures, I can't put them all on here.  I can't wait to get back.
