New Orleans in spring is delightful. It also reminded me of how wonderful and unique and exciting an American destination can be. We have traveled far and will even travel further where the sights are amazing and the food and culture are intriguing. Yet, right here in our native land we have wonderful and beautiful sights. New Orleans is one of those places.
We rode the trolly through the Garden District with its splendid homes and churches. We walked through the iconic cemeteries with raised burial spaces and tombs. We walked along the mighty Mississippi River on the boardwalk. We were fascinated by the area around the beautiful St. Louis Cathedral with its white spires reaching into the setting sun. And we wandered into the loud and rowdy St. Peter and Bourbon Street venues. Yes, we went to Cafe Du Monde for beignets. Oh yes, wonderful American pastry. Kathy, the gelato Queen even took a bite! We loved our day, and God bless America, my home, sweet home. WEG
