Hello from New Orleans! We have just a short trip here. Can I just say how nice it was to get away from below freezing and tons of snow to warmer weather?
My mom actually joined us for this part of our trip. She has never been to New Orleans, so we brought her along to show her around. My dad won’t fly, so he misses out on this (plus not sure he would be a big fan). We stayed at the Gentry House in the French Quarter.
It has a nice little courtyard in the back:
The money frog:
This place is really nice! It had probably 15 foot ceilings, which I loved! This was our bedroom.
It needs updating in some spots, like the kitchen, but some wonderful original details.
On Sunday morning, my mother wanted to go to a church service, so we took her down to the St. Louis Cathedral.
She really enjoyed the service. After the service was over, us heathens were allowed to go in and take pictures.
I have never been in a cathedral before (churches – yes). It was beautiful inside.
My favorite, of course, was the stained glass:
Since I am posting buildings, here are some more architecture pictures of the Quarter.
And I can’t do a first post without the beignets!
Nom, nom, nom!
I will do a few posts even though it was a short visit because I don’t want to blow up your feed with pictures all at once!
