New Orleans Trip Part 2 of 3

March 17th, 2015 in Our Travels Worldwide

Friends! The street performers. When I go back I will bring a lawn chair and sit and watch street performers. Want to join me?

While in Louisiana we went on a plantation tour. I have aways wanted to tour one of those. It was funny though all I ended up wanting to look at and spend time with was the trees. Trees, food, and buildings. Oh and the street performers. That is what makes me happy.

I miss big old trees. I think that is why I love parts of Salt Lake & Sugarhouse so much. Those old big trees are a comfortable companion.

Well we also went on a Bayou tour on an air boat. Tyler and I checked that off our list. Why we both wanted to go on an airboat I am not sure but we did it. It was so cold, so cold that week. I think not normal cold so the air boat made our bones cold. It took us awhile to feel warm after that. Boy are those swamps just cool. Ok so add nature to the list, I can sit and listen about nature all day too. Can you tell New Orleans is perfect for me yet?

All the alligators were burrowed deep and asleep from the cold. Which is fine for me because I’ve seen a lot of creepy large reptile things in my life. I was just happy to air boat through a bayou. THROUGH A BAYOU! Now I need to go watch Princess and the Frog.

We can leave out the voodoo shops, we are ok to skip those forever and ever. Ask my Father in law how much he liked those. Creepy eeebie jeeebies!
