Spring Vacation: Arrival

1 Comment

It’s good to get away from daily routines, even if it’s just doing something different and not really going anywhere. Yet, it’s still mind-clearing to get away. My beau and I are on a trip, beginning with a drive to New Orleans, Louisiana. I’ll be posting our adventures daily.

Let’s go!

Along the way, we stopped at an historical marker in eastern Louisiana. At the time (1810), this area was part of Spanish West Florida.  Isn’t this interesting? We weren’t taught about the Republic of Florida in school!

The road was long, especially as we crossed Lake Ponchartrain in Louisiana.

We’re almost to our destination! This is an interesting bridge.

New Orleans. The side streets aren’t what you would expect, don’t you think?

The doors to our very old and charming hotel.

Inside, as my beau was checking us in with the hotel clerk, I spied a lot of piano rolls atop an old player piano.

By this time, I hardly needed a lullaby to put me to sleep. It was a long ride, we were tired, and was time to grab a small supper and hit the hay.

Tomorrow: Walking Around New Orleans
