The ladies hit New Orleans and had a blast! October 6-9th 2016

Thursday: We Arrive

We flew out mid-day Thursday and landed without issue. We quickly hopped in a cab and headed to our Air B&B home owned by Bob. It was a beautiful shot gun house 2 blocks off St. Charles.
We spent the evening walking around, stocking up at Walgreen’s and ordering Reginelli’s Pizza for dinner.

Friday: Time to Explore

We started Friday with a 3 hour walking history tour of the Garden District and Lafayette Cemetery #1.
After that we grabbed lunch at Joey K’s and had drinks on Magazine St.
We then jumped on the Trolley using our Jazzy Pass and headed to the French Quarter. We saw a wedding processional, had lots of yummy drinks and got lost trying to find our way home.

Saturday: Time to Eat and Walk 6+ Miles!

We walked forever today!!!
We started at the Irish House for lunch and it was great.
All the trolley’s were full so we hiked a few miles past Lee Circle down to Lafayette Square to the beignet festival.

The weather was hot and the festival was super busy so we zipped into Harrah’s Casino for a few pulls on the slot machine. After we each lost, we headed up the hill to look out over the Mississippi and view the Natchez Steam Boat.

We strolled Jackson Square and stole a table at Cafe Du Monde for beignets.

Anita had her fortune read and bought a candle to clear away the bad spirits.

We finished our day at the Louisiana State Museum taking in the history of Mardi Gras and Hurricane Katrina.
We wandered home on aching feet and ordered dinner in.

Sunday: A Very Long Day

Sunday morning we headed out early to see the Uptown Garden District. We were not disappointed.  Audubon Park, Tulane and Loyola were all beautiful and the houses were stunning mansions.
We had lunch at the Blind Pelican and headed back for our Taxi to the airport. That is when things got crazy.

After a 4 hour delay in a freezing airport we finally made it home. The photos show we may have gone a bit stir-crazy.

We had so much fun!!!
