Cherie and I, along
with Jim, Tina and Shirley visit the Crescent City over the last weekend in
September. The weather was nice and we spent a good deal of time taking in the sights and sounds of New Orleans and the surrounding countryside. We've made quite a few trips to New Orleans, but this was the first time we visited some of the historical plantations west of the city. As always, we ate way too much but made up for it with vigorous walks through the French Quarter and Garden District. New Orleans is a fun and friendly town.
