NOLA Adventures Day 5 of 6

I’m almost caught up with this! Woo hoo!

Our 5th day was spent roaming the French Quarter, the Mississippi, and hanging out in Jackson Square Park (The Girl’s favorite spot).

We started our day with a walk through Louis Armstrong Park, a couple of blocks from our hotel.

Next, we went on a steamboat cruise for lunch. We boarded the Natchez and went up and down the Mississippi.

After the river cruise, we went for a walk and I collected more French Quarter images….

…including my favorite vent screens. If you recall, I’d mentioned that NOLA buildings do not have basements. They do have raised floors that provide a crawl space that is either open or enclosed and screened to allow air to circulate below the homes to help cool and manage humidity.

We spent the afternoon in Jackson Square, per The Girl’s request.

We dined at the highly recommended Red Fish Grill for dinner.

We ended our day with a much needed walk (to walk off dinner) back to the hotel.

It was our last night in NOLA, and we took the "scenic" route back to our hotel. With the New Orleans Jazz playing all around us, The Girl couldn't help but dancer in the middle of Burbon Street. I couldn't capture her as well as I'd hoped, but I love this photo nonetheless.
