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.

... after this are on their way to Vegas, then California. Funny. Preservation Hall is packed (as I think it is every night) and the group is made up of old blokes who have been around a time or two. I love this old jazz.
I will be sad to leave New Orleans. This southern hospitality and food is hard to beat. I have to say though it is definitely a town of the have and have-nots. We have seen a lot of homeless, disabled and very poor people. Despite that, we ...
... the police to be sure I was headed the right direction and headed home. It does get quiet off Bourbon Street but I saw a few couples walking and figured if anything happened I could walk with them. Not a smart idea at night but I made it fine. My husband did not have his phone so he had to race back to our inn to be sure I was all right, sorry! He caught back up with our friends and they partied a while ...
... which was a park popular with locals. It was full of people hanging out, playing guitars and walking their dogs. Seeing people with their dogs makes us want a roadtrip pet so badly that we are contemplating whether we can rent one?! It would make us very happy. Jenny wants a turtle but I would obviously want some sort of dragon. Or unicorn. I'm not picky really, I just have my heart set on owning a mythical beast. That evening, we went out with Dylan to a local ...
... a peek inside a French Quarter house as one of the other guests was a local.
The next day I'd decided to treat myself to a swamp tour to go hunt down some alligators...and by hunt down I mean, of course, go "oooooooh" and hopefully snap a picture with my now trusty camera. I did the touristy thing and started my morning with beignets and coffee at cafe du monde then took a ride out to Slidell swamp. Our guide had grown up on the swamp and regaled ...
We woke up from our late night around 8:30 and felt surprisingly not hungover, in fact I felt great! The day was beautiful and sunny without a drop of humidity in the air.
We had a snack in our room and headed down the Mississippi to the Algiers ferry dock. Along the way, we encountered the steamboat Natchez playing music on what seemed to be a steam pipe organ -- later found out it's called a Steam Calliope. It was pretty awesome so we ...
