...You may notice that the adventure has now been extended a few more days... until Saturday July 4... we just couldn't make the desired stops and maintain the schedule...
Thursday, June 25, day 27, today is a driving day and we left Defuniak FL and arrived at Ponchartrain RV Park, on the edge of New Orleans. We caught the RV park's 6:45 pm shuttle to the French Quarter and the driver let us off at Pat O'Brien's Restaurant, a popular place for music, food and a large patio with water fountains that change color. We had dinner and went into the dueling piano bar for several hours.
Friday, June 26, day 28, Again we took the park's shuttle into the French Quarter and we spent time walking around the French Quarter and took a steam boat ride on the Steamer Natchez, about three hours of fun, food, and seeing the river shoreline in the evening. After the cruise we walked down to the CafÃ© Du Monte, famous for coffee latte and beignet (Louisiana donuts) that are fried dough then topped with lots of powder sugar... yummy! I should mention we also went into Harrah's Casino (Trudy worked in the casino business for 32 years, and had worked for Harrahs) and we took a few minutes to throw quarters into the poker video slots at the bar... and we came away with a little more money then we started with... that is a first for us!
Saturday, June 27, day 29, We took a Grayline Super City Bus Tour and the driver was a good tour guide... next we walked around the French Quarter, up and down Bourbon Street, stopping at a number of bars to hear the music. The big event for us is that we had dinner at "Court of The Two Sisters" Restaurant. The food was very good, especially the desserts, Trudy had Bananas Foster and I had Cherries Jubilee After dinner we walked around the French Quarter in order to stay awake after the dinner we had. Oh yes, we also searched for fresh pralines and now we have a number of them to munch on during the trip
Sunday, June 28, day 30, Today is a driving day. We left New Orleans and headed to Austin TX, about 500 miles, which makes for a looooonnnng driving day.
... stayed tune,
Dale, Trudy and Doug
