French Quarter in New Orleans
After leaving Pensacola we arrived in New Orleans and arrived at our hotel about 11:30 and we knew that we would not be able to check in but we parked the car and got our luggage stored and we were off exploring the French Quarter. Our hotel was on Bourbon Street so the activity was going on all over. You will never see so many bars in such a small space as the French Quarter and all of the offering drinks to go. We made our way thru a large park and all of the painters and people who display there to one of favorite destinations, Café Du Monde, where we promptly ordered beignets for both Judy and I and as the pictures show, we finished them. A beignet is a French doughnut smothered in powdered sugar. After finally getting checked into the hotel and resting a bit, we went out and had some Cajun dinners, which were wonderful. The French Quarter is always a most interesting place and again we are glad that we scheduled it in our road trip.
