Besides eating, which by the way totally sucks when you have Interstitial cystitis and you go to New Orleans (more on that later), I love going into the French Market. There is always something fun to look at or try.
If you missed part 1 of our trip to New Orleans, read HERE.
We went to lunch on Bourbon (my mind slips me and I can’t remember the name of the place). We had the pleasure of being seated on the balcony which was perfect for people watching. If you haven’t people watched on Bourbon, you must!
Walking through Jackson Square is always a treat too. I love the smell. It’s a mixture of horses and beignets. I also love how so many artists flock to the square to sell their art. Unfortunately I did not get any art this time but I did network with a lot of artists and will be contacting them in the future.
We actually did something I hadn’t done in New Orleans yet. We went inside the St. Louis Cathedral. To be honest, I was in search of holy water to anoint our hotel room to prevent any hauntings at night.
Below is my favorite photo from the trip.
This is the ceiling within the Cathedral.
Every time I’m in NOLA, I run into this same silver man. So funny. I wonder what his story is and how he became a statue.
To those who have never been to New Orleans, you may not realize it’s shaped like a bowl with water all around it. If it floods, it really floods so a lot of stuff is situated off the ground in case that happens.
Someone smack me. Why didn’t I pick up about 30 air plants?!? I guess I was too busy taking photos of them. I can’t believe they were only $1.
This weekend was exactly what we both needed. Hubs has been so busy with work (going in at 4:30 most mornings) and I have been pricked and poked and catheterized to the point of exhaustion. I will give you all an update on my health later on as a lot has changed. But first I need to find out one more important piece to the puzzle. If you missed the health post from the past, read HERE.
This weekend helped refresh us both and allow us to be better people…in a sense that I’m no longer burned out or cranky all the time. 🙂
I’m still learning to use my 50mm lens but so far I loooove it…most of the time.
