Then we hit New Orleans French Quarter, Bourbon Street, and the regular tourist spots. The place is certainly old and very dirty. We didn't see where the storm came in or any damage from it, but were just generally impressed at how unkempt everything appeared to be even in the busiest tourist venues. We did have shrimp dinners there and did a lot of walking and looking around before leaving. Here are a few pictures.
Overall, we are glad we went to New Orleans but have no desire to go back. We just don't see what the big draw is, but then we weren't there for the night life or for Mardi Gras and I'm sure it is different then.
Tomorrow we head for Florida and the beaches along the panhandle. The traveling is so much fun and we love it but we are about ready for a couple of days of doing nothing but resting. That will happen very soon.
