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. We had a lot of fun running around the city in a wedding dress, and can’t wait to do it again… just kidding! Love […]
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!
Westwego, LA ~ These fishing boats were docked near the Market Wego, which is in walking distance. The market offers fresh fish and other local catches. These pictures were taken at the start of a swamp tour. After the tour we purchased a chicken stuffed with crawfish and dirty rice… yummmmie! The best. The fishing economy has really struggled since Katrina, so this was a somewhat somber experience, but you can’t keep the people of Louisiana down!
