New Orleans, LA ~ I had the pleasure of visiting New Orleans near Halloween. I guess much doesn’t change in these parts, a bit spooky all year long. We did see some strange things. While dining at Ignatius on Magazine St. we witnessed a transformer blow up, knocking out power on the entire block. There was also the case of the mysterious spider bites. However, the scariest thing was the giant head of Abraham Lincoln somewhere on Royal St.
New Orleans, LA ~ My sister entrusted me to take bridal pictures of her in preparation for her upcoming wedding. We broke many laws scouring New Orleans for the best locations. “Permits? We don’t need no stinking permits!” What you don’t see in these photos are the many onlookers shouting (mostly) words of support and encouragement.

These pictures were taken over a holiday break, thus the absence of students. It is always a pleasure to walk around feeling like you own the place!
New Orleans, LA ~ This is only a glimpse of Tulane’s campus. The grounds are quite large, and we didn’t have enough time to see everything. Even still, we had a very pleasurable stroll on a very nice day!

There are many famous people buried here, including Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau. I’m sure it is just a coincidence, but after passing her grave and making light of it, I came down with a flu bug a couple of days later. Perhaps I was […]
Westwego, LA ~ We drove to Westwego, about 20 miles away from New Orleans, for a swamp tour of Bayou Segnette. We saw all kinds of neat critters; gators, birds, and the neatest of all – a family of nutrias building a nest. The tour was relaxing and peaceful. The tour guide mentioned that he used to play in these swamps as a kid… without a boat. I’m surprised he is still alive to tell about it!
