New Orleans | Southern Roadtrip Part I

We had very limited time in New Orleans so we planned a grueling itinerary including but not limited to: French Quarter wandering (including Jackson Square, Cafe Du Monde, and general walking around), The Garden District, Audubon Aquarium, and riding a streetcar.
We may or may not have cruised a drive thru daiquiri bar and or danced in the street. NOLA. We could have listened to the jazz bands on the street all day.

Lola's (not her real name) face says it all- BEIGNETS.

Street car to the Garden District. If you go to NOLA- don’t miss this! You pick up the streetcar off of Canal Street (you can download the RTA app or have exact change for fare- 1.25 when we were there.).

Back to the French Quarter |

I got just a few pictures at the aquarium. It was really great, but I mostly I chased small people and answered the same questions over and over. Here is one peaceful moment:

And a last few…

After NOLA we tripped all over Texas. We saw many a family member and did lots of fun things. So a few more wandering posts coming soon!
Thanks, as usual, for stopping by!

Love,
