Spring Vacation – A Special Lunch

1 Comment

We are in New Orleans, Louisiana. Yesterday we did a lot of walking around the historic side of town, and by early afternoon, we were hungry.

We walked to The Court of the Two Sisters, which is in the French Quarter and is famous. The building itself has been around since 1832. To read more about its history and the restaurant, click HERE to their website. It’s interesting.

We walked down a large walkway toward the stately arched doors:
We passed one of the elegant dining rooms but opted to eat outside.
This wishing well has been around for years and years:
Two little birds joined us:
At the buffet, we discovered different foods. The Cajun corn salad was good.  Have you every tried it?  I also tried their turtle soup and liked it!
A jazz band played, too:
After eating, we then headed back to the little shops in the neighborhood to take in some more sights. We discovered The Old Absinthe Shoppe. The original façade is in the following top black and white picture, taken when my Ma visited New Orleans in the early 1950s. The photograph below it is how it looks today:
Our day done, we headed back to our hotel room.

I’ll be posting our adventures daily.

Tomorrow: Packing Up for Port

One thought on “Spring Vacation – A Special Lunch

  1. You would think one could get a nice Absinthe in The Old Absinthe Bar, eh? No way. It’s now a toney shot and beer joint……….
