The famous St. Louis cathedral was just a couple of blocks from our hotel so we went there to see if there were any special St. Joseph's day displays. There weren't any displays here but the cathedral was beautiful and we thought of our friend Marion especially on this day since she was unable to make this trip with us.
The St. Louis Cathedral is among the oldest cathedrals in the United States. The first church on the site was built in 1718. It is located in the French Quarter of New Orleans, Louisiana.It is located next to Jackson Square and facing the Mississippi River in the heart of New Orleans, situated between the historic buildings of the Cabildo and the Presbytere.
As expected Cafe Du Monde was filled with people.
If you walk around to the back of the restaurant there is a window where you can see the workers making and frying the beignets. That was a fun sight to see.
At 10:30 we walk to the Streetcar boarding area at St. Charles Avenue where we board at Canal and Carondolet streets. Fare is $1.25 each way. We want to take the St. Charles streetcar to Washington stop. The line runs every 20 minutes.
New Orleans. Highly recommend.
This was followed by a most interesting
Many historic figures owned homes in this area.
After returning to the hotel and resting up from the afternoon walks we decided to once again window shop along Royal Street.
After some time it began to drizzle and we found ourselves in front of a familiar place, Yayyy "Pat O'Brien's".
But luckily few people wanted to sit outside because most of the chairs were wet. That did not stop us. Mitra found a table and we got a waiter to dry our chairs.
Back in business again with our now favorite Hurricanes!
Since we had no dinner plans we looked at each other and said, "How about another Hurricane?"
Didn't have to twist Mitra's arm (or mine).
That's when things got really silly. We started laughing so hard we could not stop.
We started laughing so hard our sides were aching. We were bent over with our heads on the table. I'm sure we made people around us laugh and wonder too. It was hysterical and I don't even remember what made us start laughing. Every time we caught our breath and came up for air we would burst into laughter again.
Day turned to night and the fountains were all aglow and so were we!
P.S. We both took our hurricane glasses home with us.
