... and I had some competition for her affection that day.
We headed back into town for a look at the WWII museum. We thought we’d knock it over in 2 hours. We were there for 4. It was a really comprehensive, descript and at time moving collection of all things WWII.

New Orleans, being a city with so many influences - French, Spanish and Canadian is really a wonderfully diverse destination. It’s some place we all will want to go again.

... they were really refreshing with it being so hot. We watched a lot of street performances and live music, laid in the park, drank by the Mississippi, watched the parade, had a 'po-boy' which sounds more interesting then it actually is (essentially a sandwich) and watched the World Series with some more beer. When that finished we headed down Bourbon street which was incredible. All the bars give you drinks in plastic cups so you can ...
... It was fun though.
Earlier that day I had phoned up and booked us onto a swamp tour for the next day. Early Sunday morning we get up, pack up, get breakfast and head off to the swamp! This was one of the things that both of us really wanted to do. We were going to be taken out on a boat by a local guide and he would show us the swamp, and all the different animals and plants.
We all pile into the boat and set off. Initially it just looks like ...

The restaurant opened in 2011 -- the first restaurant on the beach to reopen after Katrina.

TravelPod Member ReviewsJoe & Flo's Candlelight Hostel New Orleans
Really felt like I was just living in Joe and Flo's home.
It is about 15 minutes from Bourbon Street and the rest of the action in a quiet part of town. Close to a couple of really great places to eat (Lil Dizzy's and Cajun Seafoods). Across the highway at night is a little sketchy but no real issues. The rooms are generously sized and comfortably air conditioned. Small common areas and quite a small population of stayers meant the place was nice and quiet. Though they do have 24 hour access and always someone a phonecall away for the night owls. Staff were super friendly and helpful in organising tours and suggesting places to hang out.
Would definitely recommend, gives you a little escape from the hoopla of Bourbon without being isolated.
