My wife and I arrived in New Orleans this morning for a quick vacation to celebrate her graduation and her new job and spending our stimulus rebate checks that we haven't received yet. We've spent all day walking around the French Quarter, up and down, and all around. I had the most amazing Shrimp and Grits today... Also some Gumbo/Jambalaya... Fantastic stuff! We went to the aquarium and took a haunted history tour which was actually quite fascinating and engaging. I am in love with this area and want to buy up one of the apartment/condos in this area with a gallery (balcony) hanging over so I can watch everyone below while growing fantastic CPs!
I can't remember everything else we're doing, but I know we're going on a bog tour, going to Emeril's restaurant, and some other stuff. We leave on Saturday.
Here are some pictures I wanted to quickly share (I had some fun messing around with our camera's color settings, which I had never done before. Since we just got a new camera, we are going to try and get some high quality photos to frame):
I know that's quite the variety of images, and not really a good representation of what we actually did today; but I had a lot of other pictures, these just turned out the best.
