Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

New Orleans

Here are some scenes from New Orleans French Quarter.  We arrived here on a Monday and departed the next day for points east.  New Orleans was not to my liking.

I think I might have liked looking at the art and listening to the music while sipping coffee.

Marcia, New Orleans is a treasure with its people, music, architecture and art. I need to put this on "my to do list." Thanks for stopping by, I hope to see you back again.

What's not to like? It was one of my favorite trips which I wrote about here: http://www.looseleafnotes.com/2015/04/tour-de-france-quarter-by-horse/

What lovely shots. I like the architecture.

Oh, you got some GREAT shots in the short time you were there. I'm with you...I can take or leave the place. It does have a few redeeming qualities, but they are hard to appreciate when you are surrounded by all the negative ones. Loved the post!

I love this post, with all your wonderful photos.
It's been a long time since I visited New Orleans with friends, in the mid-to-late 1970s, but I'll never forget the lacy balconies, the fabulous restaurants, the unforgettable food, and the wonderful people.
I even had a favourite musician who, when he saw me I come into the club with my friends, played 'Sugar Blues' the way Clyde McCoy played Sugar Blues.
It's not quite as long since the flood that devastated the city, but the residents of that iconic city built it right back up again, as close as possible to (dare I say it?) the real McCoy!
And another memory of New Orleans—I'm not sure if I have this correct, but I remember torrential rain that fell from 4pm to 5pm every day, then stopped.

I like New Orleans French Quarter in the early morning when you have it to yourself. I went to Mardi Gras once. Never again!

Boy, I would love to be there to see all this for myself. Some of your pics sure pull me in.
