We had a grand time. We saw her parents in Washington, my parents in Georgia, and my son, his wife and my grandson in Alabama. We took quite a few pictures so they will be showing up here from time to time. Here’s a bird picture Melisa took in Georgia. I think it’s a thrush. What do you think?
On the way back we stopped in New Orleans. I told the lady on my phone to find me a cheap hotel in the French Quarter. She came back with one for $79 a night. It looked perfect, two or three blocks from Jackson Square and a block from Bourbon Street. I booked it immediately. As I pushed the button to confirm I realized they were saying I could get a balcony for $125. I immediately cancelled that one and reserved the balcony room. Here’s a Picture I took from our third floor balcony.
The next morning we were sitting on the balcony drinking coffee (or something) and a tour guide came by with a group of people and pointed at our hotel and said that it was the former House of the Rising Son. I got out my guitar and played House of the Rising Son on the third floor balcony of the House of the Rising son.
Here’s a panoramic on the waterfront with my phone.
We ate three pounds of crawfish at the Market Street Cafe. It was a wonderful time!
Melisa took this picture of me. She loves it. I hate pictures of me…
