New Orleans – Louisiana

October 9, 2010

La Quinta Inn – downtown, near the French Quarter.

A room on the 8th Floor.

A dog that won’t go into elevators.

A good friend, Don, who was vacationing for the week in New Orleans, along with his wife, Melissa, and friends, Mike and Marnie.

A Hurricane and an Alligator Po-Boy.

An eye-opening walk down Bourbon Street.

Being scolded in a voo-doo shop for touching.

Another Hurricane in a really big glass.

A great Blues band.

A successful run at a Craps table at Harrah’s, plus free beer.

A midnight walk with a dog that approves neither of Bourbon Street nor of midnight walks nor of the intoxication that would cause his owner to think that a midnight walk down Bourbon Street with a 95 dog was a good idea.

A sound sleep.

An all-morning walk in and about the French Quarter.

Antique store window shopping.

Three beignets with a coffee.

A nice conversation with a couple from Ohio.

A quick stop at a a bayou next to the highway leading out of town.

20 excellent hours in New Orleans.


Marnie, Mike, Melissa, and Don.

Tourist shot.



Shot of tourists.



Beignet Buddies



Kettle, what a big mouth you have.



The Bayou. I think.

    So you’ve been to the famous Pat O’Briens for Hurricans! Joe and I could not walk after leaving there.
