More Pictures from New Orleans

Here are a few more pictures from my week in New Orleans accompanied by descriptions. Hope you enjoy them! πŸ™‚

What a view of the Vieux Carre!This was the view of the French Quarter from our 17th floor window. The weather was nice, mostly cloudy which helped with the sun. But the humidity was terrible. It had been a long time since I was this close to the Gulf of Mexico. I had forgotten what that humidity was like, ha.

Second StoryI like the architecture and stonework in the French Quarter. Hanging plants and American flag FTW!

Bloody MaryEven the Bloody Marys have crawfish in them! Very spicy to boot. What could be better for a breakfast drink?

Pirates AlleyBack around behind Pirates Alley. Faulkner wrote near here. I love this little nook and every time I am in New Orleans I make it a point to visit.

LightsThe shops are filled with beautiful pieces. I was captivated by the lights in this one and had to take a picture. (Even though it was against the rules of the store, sorry!)

Me, black coffee, a Maduro cigar, and Caribbean music in the background.While I was visiting the Cigar Factory a couple people stopped by to take pictures. I figured if they wanted a picture of me, then I should have one for posterity! πŸ˜›

    I have to comment on the last picture; I have a photo of my dad with the exact same expression holding a cigar in the exact same way. Do you think it’s genetic?
