Terry "earned" a free trip to New Orleans through work so off we went at the hottest time of year to the Big Easy!
We took a tour to Oak Alley Plantation. I know I was supposed to live in a plantation like this in another life!
We took a riverboat dinner cruise on the Mississippi
We saw lots of alligators on our swamp tour
The big banquet was held at Mardi Gras World where they stor all the floats
Lucky for us our dear friends, Lee and Rhonda, got to go too! They had lived in New Orleans and were great tour guides
Terry loved holding this little gator - notice his mouth is taped shut!
I loved this indoor Gone with the Wind setting
Post Katrina housing is very colorful!
We rode the streetcar to church
I just love their cemeteries
Rhonda and I after our cooking class. We are now experts on Red Beans and Rice, Jambolaya, and Bananas Foster!
Thanks for a great time in the very hot and interesting Big Easy!
