Sunday morning we walked to Jackson Square to find the cafe Jim remembered from 1965, Cafe Du Monde. We reached it just as the rains came and made a mad dash across the street to the covered outdoor cafe. After enjoying our breakfast, Jim found the apartment that he and Tim Carpenter shared, see the picture below, but it looks much nicer now than it did in '65. We then did a little shopping as we continued back to the Mothership, again very tired and hot, so before we took off we enjoyed the pool and hot tub. That was very refreshing before we set out for the bayou and more heat and humidity.
