Well, cruising and a little boozing. I spent the last 5 days on the Carnival Triumph out of New Orleans to Cozumel and Progreso. Lots of great food, lots of laughs with my nieces, nephews, brother and sister-in-law, lots of pictures taken and, unfortunately, a LOT of motion sickness meds. I am back in NOLA combining a little work and play for the next couple of days. Bonus: a amazingly low rate at my favorite hotel – The French Market Inn. This is the 6th time in the last 20 years I have stayed at this hotel. Quaint, historic, right in the Quarter, but far enough off Bourbon to not be too crazy.
More on the cruise and New Orleans later. Right now, I’m off to find some gumbo and red beans and rice! I worked up quite an appetite exploring the Garden District (my favorite spot in NOLA).
Enjoy these few pictures from my phone and I’ll add more when I download them from my camera.
Every trip to New Orleans has to start with beignets & cafe au lait.
This was a sort-of honeymoon for my Dad and new stepmom, Sue, so we made sure their cabin was appropriately decorated.
Once we were out of the Mississippi River, the water was soooo blue. I want to live where it looks like this all the time!
We spent our day in Cozumel at Mr Sancho’s – a really cool, all-inclusive beach resort. All you could eat and all you could drink – we made sure we got our monies worth!
My brother’s three kids always make me laugh and smile. Hannah is my mini-me; Jared is the entertainer; Ethan, the oldest celebrated his 20th Birthday on-board with a surprise cake set up by his girlfriend, Amanda.
We were trivia and bingo champs!
The best part was spending time with my amazing brother and his family.
Now, will someone please buy me one of these houses so I never have to leave New Orleans! 😊
