New Orleans Trip

Once again, I've been a bad blogger! But for good reason. I've been in New Orleans for a friend's wedding and some fun. The wedding was incredible but of course I had used up my memory card and have no actual pictures of the wedding itself! But I do have a few to share of New Orleans...

We had a balcony room about a building away from Bourbon St. This is a view of the Royal Sonesta Hotel...I love all the iron work!

The hotel restaurant. I was tempted to try oysters since they will no longer be available very soon due to the oil leak in the Gulf (they say that this month may be the last of them,) but a fellow airplane passenger told me the rule is that you should only eat oysters during the months that have an "r" in them...as we all know, there isn't an "r" in June...I decided not to press my luck!

Cool bike...

With a cool rim!

This was another view from our balcony. (This wasn't from the wedding we were attending.) It had just stopped raining and was crazy humid. Air conditioning from our room and the humidity caused my camera lens to blur when I took the picture it gave it such a dreamy look...happy accident!

Ok, thanks for indulging me!
