Day 353 - 354 -355 New Orleans We are staying at the Lake Ponchetrain RV Park not far from the city and they have a shuttle bus that takes you in at 10:00 and noon and picks you up at either 4:00 or 8:00 p.m. We take the 10 a.m. in and the 8 p.m. back. We had a nice walk around the town before we boarded a gray line tour for 2.5 hours around several of the hot spots of N'Alins. We stopped at one of the grave sites and walked around a bit, then to the 2nd largest park in the US, called Sculptures Park. It is huge and quite a wonderful thing for New Orleans
After our tour we got one of the Beignet's from Cafe Mundo and enjoyed it immensely. We found a great place for dinner and in between the tour and our pick up time of 8:00 p.m. we walked up and down just about every street that looked interesting, people watched, watched street performers, saw two weddings and one group of wedding goers with a police escort marching down the street complete with a band
The last time we were in New Orleans was in 1974, for Mardi Gras, so it was nice to see it again. We were pleasantly surprised by what we saw in the downtown area. We didn't have a chance to go out to the areas that were hardest hit by Katrina and I'm sure they are not fine yet.
