Romantic Adventure in New Orleans

Another year passes

Another Mardi Gras comes to an end. We’re all moving slow now, a bit exhausted from all the preparation and celebration.  Ladders and chairs lean against the house….beads hang from the trees and power lines on the Avenue…out of towners sort though their teasures trying to narrow what will fit in that homeward bound suitcase…. goodbyes have been made to new friends met on the parades with shouts of see ya next year. Until next year!

Living On the Parade Route

It’s almost here.Anticipation pervades the neighborhood as we ready ourselves for the big weekend  ahead. The most colorful parades start tomorrow! Anyone living within a short walk, like our B&B;, are getting out the barricades and ropes to save parking space for family and friends.  This is a time you realize you have friends you didn’t even know. A nearby bathroom is a wonderful addition to the parade experience.
