Last Saturday Mike and Jessie invited us to a craw fish boil (or Mudbug boil as the locals call it). All I can say is YUM!
I love the hat Mike!
They look like mini lobsters
We went back to crawling around the French Quarter on Wednesday. We did a little bit of shopping and a LOT of walking. The whole area is fascinating.
The street side of the homes look rather deceiving. No front lawns, narrow streets and some with windows shuttered but when you peek between them and down a short ally you see a lush and peaceful place to enjoy a nice afternoon. Ira said it reminded him of Spain.
The other day I noticed that my military ID was about to expire. (Thanks Dee for the reminder). I also still had the old one with my social on it. They have changed that since I had it done so we took care of that while we were here.
These trees are all over the place here and if you look closely at the above picture of one you will see it had flowers blooming on it.
That is about it for us in New Orleans. We have a few more days here and plan to do Bourbon Street at night and take in the WWII museum. I will let you know how it goes. Bye for now and for those of you on the road, safe travels. Maybe we will meet down the road one day.
