Tuesday 27th July 2010

We decided against the hotels meager free breakfast fare & took a walk towards canal street and found an authentic American diner for a breakfast cooked before our very eyes! Eggs Bacon Grits ( Savory porridge ) & hash browns..

Back to the hotel & the faff of getting our car back from valet parking ..We travelled through oil refinery country, areas which are routinely flooded & the coastal defenses are a work of art..Again The homes ranged from 5+ feet off the ground on stilts to having been built more permanently on grassy mounds. During our ride to the peninsular Ian narrowly missed making road kill of a Raccoon who hadn't learned his green cross code..Fluffy lives to fight another day.
We drove to a point signposted the furthest point in Louisiana, gateway to the Gulf..expecting the harrowing sight of penguins covered in oil, I was relieved to see not a sign of BP's disaster.

Min makes an impromptu bog stop..

Back at the hotel we deposited the car in valet parking & made ready for our last night of partying in Bourbon street ( Ian has drunk beer 3, YES 3 times this week ), We are settled on a very noisy balcony at the Bourbon Embers steak house , over looking the revellers, drinking a " huge ass" beer each ( Min is on the huge ass Sprite, Thank goodness she knows the way back ! )..We will say goodbye to The Big Easy tomorrow & continue our adventure..

Well dear reader I have sent you a little New Orleans Voodoo....enjoy xxx
