Trip to New Orleans!

I'm back! Here is my photo log from my trip to New Orleans. We drove from Atlanta and it took about 7 hours or so. On our way there, we did make a stop in Mississippi. View from hotel room. Biloxi, Mississippi This is Nero, our traveling kitty. He's 18 years old! On Sunday we made it to New Orleans by 1pm and Seaworthy was our first stop for some food. The oysters were so good there. Oysters at Seaworthy Seaworthy is such a charming restaurant. I loved the atmosphere and lighting. I took some really great photos and would definitely go back there again.  Seaworthy  Seaworthy Seaworthy Seaworthy Seaworthy After oysters we walked around a bit before going to the airport to pick up my sister and my husband's uncle and his wife. The first night we had dinner at Tujague's. It was pretty good, but after we went to Cafe du Monde for some beignets. Soooooo good. It is sugary goodness from heaven. Cafe

NOLA Trip!

I've never been to NOLA before so I wasn't sure what to expect.  I knew it gets crazy during Mardi Gras, but let me know you it is still pretty crazy on a regular weekend, so I can't even imagine how bad it gets during Mardi Gras.  We landed in New Orleans just in time for walking around the French Quarter for a bit before heading to dinner.  We stayed at the Hyatt right in the French Quarters. Bourbon Street So there are LOTS of drunk people walking around Bourbon Street day and night.  I'm not big on drinking so it's a little awkward for me to be around this kind of crowd.  If I never had another drink in my life, I really wouldn't miss it!
