"N" is for New Orleans!

This week ABC Wednesday is "N" as in New Orleans, my favorite vacation spot to visit. We just got back last week after spending 6 days in "Nawlins" and thoroughly enjoying it. This was the first we had been back since Katrina. We had missed it so much and were happy to spend some time there eating our way through the French Quarter. The following are some of our photos of our trip. We highly recommend everyone to visit the Big Easy if they get a chance. You will be treated to the culture, music, food, and the wonderful people of New Orleans.

Columbo, sorry we couldn't connect on your trip to the Big Easy. Great shots. When I was working downtown, Johnny's was a regular eating place.

We're getting settled in in Beaumont, TX now, but travelling back to N'Awlins to see the relatives a lot.

Great photo essay on the city. You have the photographer's eye
