Road Trip - Tallahassee to New Orleans

Day 8 - Thursday 23rd May - Tallahassee to New Orleans

Slept well at the motel, real bed! OK breakfast, learned the lady's whole family, including her sixteen year old son who eats everything and her daredevil daughter in the navy!


Got on the road to New Orleans, I-10 for over five hours!

Stopped at a rest stop, then in Alabama for gas, and in Mississippi for lunch! 


Made it to New Orleans around two, they didn't even check the car so we just ran away before they noticed the scratch! Although I think it's more likely that it was just covered by the insurance so they didn't actually care!

So hot here! Chilled out (literally) at hotel for a bit before venturing out into the French Quarter. So many amazing houses!

Saw crazy Bourbon Street, to be avoided for rest of trip, Royal Street with antique and art shops. Bought some praline, and Taffy for Tamz. Got an iced chai at a lovely cafe. Saw a wedding at Jackson Square. checked out the waterfront, serenaded by the old guy!

Saw the French market then wandered up to Louis Armstrong park where there was a little festival thing going on, lots of music and people watching. 

Went back to the market for a drink at the Market Cafe, also with music. Then an amazing dinner of alligator sausage and chicken gumbo! 

Took pecan pie to go, enjoyed with tea and silly telly back at hotel. Now excited for sleeping in the super comfy bed!
