For my Birthday this year we took a driving trip to New Orleans. San Antonio to New Orleans is about a 9 hour drive with maybe a couple of short stops. Going there we stoped in Lake Charles to gamble and stay the night. Then left the next morning for NOLA. It was so much fun.
This was our first trip to New Orleans since Katrina.
Love, love, love it.
As always I like taking pics of old architecture. Hopefully it won't be my last time to visit.
We ate at Antoine's...the oldest restaurant in the states. A very nice place and since it was my birthday they took us on a tour of the place.
We sat at the Carousel bar in Hotel Monteleone.
I bought a voodoo doll at Marie Laveau's Voodoo shop.
Drank absinthe at Tony Sevilles.
Ate a beignet at Cafe Beignet's not at Cafe Du monde, ate at Cafe Du monde last time.
Had another drink at the oldest bar in the US......LaFitte's Blacksmith Bar and watched tourist in horse drawn carriages get served drinks by the bartender.
Ate oysters at Royal House Oyster bar.
Watched the tourist from a balcony on Bourbon street.
Walked around Jackson Square and Jax brewery.
Shopped in the French Quarters flea market, listened to a lot of street music and ate a lot of Gumbo.
Nothing better then Cajun food.
