New Orleans, Lousiana

We spent three days prior to our cruise in New Orleans (NOLA)....
I have been there many times in the past for Jazz Fest, Sugar Bowls, Weddings,
Mardi Gras, etc
.....but this is Rob's first visit to THE BIG EASY!
 Rob posing with a jazz singer/dancer??
 Photos on Bourbon Street...we just ventured there one evening for dinner.
All of our other outings were off of Decatur Street.....
We ate at Red Fish Grill....delicious NOLA food!
I had...BBQ Oysters, Dinner Salad with Crab and Blue Cheese,
Crab Croquettes (Crab, Gulf shrimp and cream cheese croquettes served with
roasted beets, pecans and an apple rosemary vinaigrette.)
Rob had Southern Comfort BBQ Shrimp and Gumbo
You can see our dessert...the best dessert of our trip!!
Butter Rich Pecan Pie with Yam Ice Cream! YUMMY!!
Posing with some local guys.....
 St. Louis Cathedral ~ downtown NOLA
The church is located in Jackson Square...a very popular tourist attraction!
LOTS of history there....
One of my favorites....relaxing and watching spots in New Orleans.....
and the coffee/beignets are AMAZING!!
 Wish I had some NOW!
We had been on the plane with these guys from Dallas...they sat in first class...
We had no idea who they were until we saw them again at Cafe Du Monde.
Comedian Steve Harvey......our first of two famous people sightings!
We were mostly impressed with Steve Harvey's body guard...
...Boomerang a.k.a."Big Boom"!
He had on shoes that cost over a thousand dollars and was dripping in diamonds..
while carrying a huge leather saddlebag!
 Tamela J. Mann of Meet the Browns
"Cora Brown"
"Mr. Brown" and "Cora Brown"
The filming crew...filming Mr. and Cora Brown walking down Decatur Street.
Now....we have to watch that tv show...and spot the stars!
Thanks Diana....we loved Central Grocery...
we have made muffulettas since we returned home from our trip.
We ate half for lunch and had the other half in our hotel room for supper!!!
Our nephew, Michael....posing with a beautiful lady...
Me and My Father-in-Law "Fran"....
 Cheers....frozen beverages in styrofoam cups....LOVE IT!!
 Me and "My PGA Man" by the Mississippi River
My nephew, Joseph and I got in the Mississippi....
there was an area roped off for pictures
otherwise I wouldn't have hopped in!!
Michael is ready to go back to the hotel to rest...or SWIM!!
We loved eating at this diner right by our hotel....
delicious macaroni and cheese, sweet tater fries, coconut
cream pie, peanut butter pie...the list goes on!!

Happy Birthday, Rob!
July 3rd....Natchez Dinner River Cruise
My PGA Man celebrated in style.....CHEEZ!
