The last segment of our current adventure is a prolonged stop in New Orleans, Louisiana. Sharon had visited shortly after college and I had never been.
We parked the motorhome at St. Bernard State Park; large lots, good space between sites, and water/electricity. A very rustic location, but convenient access to the city. There is a central RV resort, downtown; but we thought it overpriced and crowded.
We took the hop on/hop off tour, for a good idea of what we wanted to see. The WWII Museum was overwhelming and powerful; but after the movie, we needed a break. The French Quarter was nice, but that & the Bourbon Street region were smaller than I expected. Still, we enjoyed some good music and the casual feel of walking through the neighborhoods.
New Orleans Saints football fans are energetic and it was our misfortune to be in town when the team spanked our Buffalo Bills. I am still wondering about the “Who Dat” connection (?)!
My favorite memories were the brass band concerts at the Armstrong Park, touring the Battle of New Orleans historic site, and getting to know the parishioners at Unity of New Orleans.
Now, on to Florida; with a rush through Alabama (not wishing to spend money there, for political considerations)! We’ll be writing more about our 3/4 year on the road; stay tuned!
