We got up and had a good breakfast provided by our hosts. Donna finally got a plate of her beloved grits! (In case you don't know it's white, tasteless mush that make oatmeal seem like the most delicious stew you've ever had …
Your first New Orleans kiss will come as you step outside from the air-conditioned halls of Louis Armstrong Airport. The warm, humid kiss of Louisiana. The hot and sticky breath of your southern soon-to-be lover will caress your face, and within moments, you'll be struggling out of your clothes. Try to keep some control. It may be a party town, but …

We were excited to be in a big hotel again free of ants and have more than one bathroom for the five of us. We walked to dinner that night.

We stayed 2 nights on Algiers Point at the House of the Rising Sun Bed and Breakfast, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Host Kevin was very helpful in providing information on what to do our first night on 'The Point' and on ideas for our full day 'over the river. Our GPS brought us right to the front door, and that's where the car stayed until we departed. The free (for walk-on) ferry crossed the Mississippi every 1/2 hour, and drops you right at the foot of Canal Street next to the French Quarter.
Back at the house we had all we needed, with high speed internet, excellent shower, and a nice fresh breakfast. Thanks again to Kevin and Wendy.
