A taste of New Orleans


So where does one go when visiting New Orleans?

This eclectic place has something for everyone.




I tend to gravitate towards the history and landscape.


The weather is perfect this time of the year!!


New Orleans is about one hour away from our home so it makes for a great getaway.

If you visit magazine street, you're in for a treat!

Stores and quaint little shops line the streets.






If you can find a car lot, that would be my first pick.

Parking can be a mess on these tiny streets.


On almost any given day, you can find them filming a movie.

Louisiana is a hot spot for film makers....


On this day...

They were filming a movie with Tom Cruz.

We didn't spot anyone famous but it was fun to watch.


The set was decorated for halloween.



It's amazing how much effort goes into just one scene.


One of my favorite things about New Orleans...

The secret courtyards.

Most are hidden behind brick walls and iron gates.

You can more often hear the fountains and know something wonderful is just behind.


But...

Every now and then, you can find one and have a peek!

Our climate here is so warm, our flowers are still showing off and the grass is still lush and green.


It's almost funny to see Christmas garland and fluffy ferns beside one another..

Gotta love Louisiana!



Below is something neat that I have never noticed before.

If you look closely on the brick wall...


Do you see it?

It's shards of glass all along the top of the wall.


I'm guessing they did this years ago to keep people from crossing over.


And because we never get snow...

We have to pretend and get creative lol..

I love how they decorated this home below.



I almost felt like I was in a winter wonderland...almost.

Then when remembered I was wearing shorts and flip flops. ha!




I'm not much for Bourbon street really.

This is about as close as we get.. crossing the street lol





Jazz... every day... all day!



A must here... Cafe' du Monde.


And if I had to take one memory home with me...

This below say's it all


Peace 
y'all
