Spring Vacation: Walking Around New Orleans


My beau and I are in New Orleans, Louisiana. We slept good last night in our very old, nineteenth century hotel. Since it’s not on a main street, it was quiet, even as the sun came up.  After grabbing a small breakfast, we spent the morning walking around the old part of town and taking in the history and sites.

First, was this old corner drug store. It was like it never changed from the old days, including its lunch counter:
The original tile floor was well-worn and fascinating. Can you imagine how many people over the decades walked across it?
These white curtains on a porch look inviting:
The fancy wrought iron balcony is like sweet confectionary on Esplanade Avenue:
Looking down a gangway:
Shadows of old Royal Street:
Water dishes for thirsty dogs are commonplace here:
It’s time for lunch. Stop by tomorrow to see where we dined.

I’ll be posting our adventures daily.

Tomorrow: Lunch

My short stories, poetry, and photographs have been published in the Emerald Coast Review (18th and 19th editions), newspapers, and in many other publications.
