Our hotel was in the heart of the French Quarter and we got out quite a bit to walk and sightsee during this relatively calm period of the year in the Big Easy.
On this trip I got around to doing some of the things I had been unable to accomplish on previous visits, including a comprehensive walking tour of historic homes in the Garden District and a visit to Saint Louis Cemetery #1 (the oldest in New Orleans).
I took almost 200 pictures, so it was a real chore to winnow it down to what you see displayed here. I hope y'all enjoy my armchair tour through this truly one-of-a-kind city.
Click on 'em twice and they get real big!
