Lazy Sunday

All this sun, warm temperatures and nice breezes; where is the frigid wind, snow, ice and shush? Back home - that's where!

Today mostly revolved around the arrival of the Geezerettes at the New Orleans Airport. This morning we cleaned camp, sorted laundry and re-organized our confusion so the ladies could move into this male bastion.
So we ran into these two blondes at the airport...
After greeting them at the airport with Mardi Gras beads, we headed to Traceys, the restaurant in the Garden District recommended by Bryan Holt last night on the Ferry. En route, we encountered a Mardi Gras parade that probably went about 2 miles - great fun. The only problem is the parade route was between us and a good lunch! By twisting and turning in the back streets we finally found an alternate route to Traceys - thank God for the GPS to aid in steering!
An unexpected treat - one of the many Mardi Gras parades
Well, Bryan did not steer us wrong! The Roast Beef Po' Boys in a friendly pub atmosphere hit the spot for the travelers.
How can you go wrong with Irish flags out front?
Back at the campsite, we took a walk, a quick Whalen, then set about preparing a dinner of char-grilled pork shops and a veggie pasta. Tonight will be an early night - big day exploring Nola tomorrow afternoon and evening!
