... to the city on the new route. Once in the city we took ourselves off on a self guided historical tour of the French Quarter. It was really interesting but took longer than we thought! Part way along we went to the historic "Café du Munde" for coffee/hot chocolate and Beignets. Delicious for Wendy… then to the French Market for an alligator on a stick (sausage) for Rick.. delicious also. At the end ...
Bought a Hunker Down from the Texas Bar on the upper deck - which had Amaretto and some other alcohol in it - and sipped it at a table by the railing under the canopy of the forward deck. The jazz band had started playing again and a cool breeze was coming down the river. Very pleasant. Finished my drink and relocated to the rear upper deck, which also has a small bar.

In the end, it took us around 14 hours to make it to the hotel in the heart of New Orleans. We finally konked out at 11 PM in the midst of heat and humidity.
Tomorrow we make the final journey home...cross those fingers for the car to make it!
