New Orleans

Yae ! dug out of the snow drifts and made it to Shells !

Diva snuggling in for the duration .

Cracker being the King for a week... on Tess's new bed.

5:30 is just too darn early to look excited...

Tim is excited !

The Duroe taxi took us to the KC airport from there to New Orleans where we wandered and took in the sites. It was cold !
WE took the street car down thru the Garden District with beautiful old houses. Later we returned to go to a cheese cake Italian restaurant for supper. MMM Good!! They told us the street car came by every 15 min. so no worries..........
but we stood out there for 30 min then walked to the next trolley stop. waited there. It was Cold !. walked to the next stop. waited till we were hopping up n down........... finally picked up the pace and walked the mile back to our hotel ! It was all lit up very pretty.

The next morning we had time to stroll out n about for our Breakfast.
We were curious about what the inside of some of these neat old city buildings.

Love the long skinny windows with shutters.

here is a neat house very close to a warehouse building. I'm thinking it has a historic classification so that they cant tear it down. ?

The street cars have several routes thru out the city.

Tangled in the lovely wrout iron and trees are left over beads from a prior celebration.

We admired very cool plants along our walk. I wonder if it will grow in MO??
~~~~~~~~~ and off to the boat and passport checks

Yae !! aboard the boat.. we can see the New Orleans sky line and the notorious Dome in the back.

stretching out and looking down from the promenade you can see the check in building and all the fork lifts loading up cargo and supplies.

soon they will fire up the engines and you can feel the rumbles getting ready for take off ~~ !
