Hi again. I am just going to select a few more highlights to share. Although we did lots of things, I didn't bring my camera everywhere we went. And a lot of my photos weren't good. The first time we went to New Orleans, we took an air boat trip and saw lots of gators and wildlife. It was a lot of fun. This time we took a bayou trip on a patio type boat. Most of the time we were going very slowly, looking for gators, but the boat also went very fast too. The guide would put a piece of hot dog on a stick, or a marshmallow, and the gator would just swim right over.
We saw some interesting houses on the bayou too.
We also took a city tour that brought us all throughout New Orleans, and in the neighborhoods that were worst hit in Katrina. Many of the houses were still empty and marked with the markings that the rescue workers used to determine if anyone were in house, and whether deceased or not. Very eery. We saw shotgun houses, and beautiful stately homes in The Garden District. So many things. Such great times! I think my Mom enjoyed it very much!!! I know we sure had fun! A trip to remember forever! Thank you Mom!!! Back home we went. And life resumed it's normal hectic pace.
