2011 Road Trip - New Orleans, part 2

What a wonderful visit we’ve had these pass three days. We’ve taken a horse drawn carriage ride throughout the French Quarter, Airboat Adventures tour (we saw alligators and swamps), City Tour on a bus (saw damage done by the broken levees in 2005), and a ride down the Mississippi River on the Steamboat Natchez.

Our breakfast
We walked in and out of just about every opened store in the French Quarter. One of the breakfast places we tried was the famous Café Du Monde. We drank coffee and ate Beignets. They’re like a rectangle “donut” with mounds of powered sugar on top. Very sweet but oh so good! They are a MUST if you come to New Orleans. Had lunch or dinner at different places each day.

While on the tours we couldn’t help but notice the gas prices and comparing them with California. The lowest we sign we saw was $3.02 gallon. As we left the city, the prices were steadily raising.

Good-bye New Orleans, we had three very relaxing days.
