Blogging on the road is a little harder than I thought it would be. Right now we’re stopped in the middle of “nowhere west Texas” at a rest stop, interestingly, the only place we could find with a strong 4G cell signal. We left New Orleans a few days ago and are on our way to Phoenix. We were in NOLA for Mike’s birthday and boy did we have a blast!
We decided to stay at the very expensive (to us) French Quarter RV Resort. It’s normally $96/ night but was $90/night with our Good Sam’s discount. Prices are even more expensive during festival and game times. But looking at taxi fare to and from one of the state parks and it really did make sense. The park is on the northern edge of the FQ and we could walk to and from wherever and whenever we wanted. Breakfast beignets and coffee at Cafe du Monde in the morning and then back again at night… It’s also right beside the Louis Armstrong park which was a great place to walk Indy!
And of course, our first morning in NOLA started with beignets and coffee at Cafe du Monde with an 8am Hurricane chaser!!
We definitely took advantage of everything the city had to offer. *wink*wink* There’s really no place “funner” to be than right here on your birthday!
It started with lunch, on a beautiful balcony at Royal House Oyster Bar listening to live jazz drifting up from the street below. A scene right out of the movies!
Then to make sure everyone knows Mike is a birthday boy!!
A little later, a drink stop at the bar at Bourbon Orleans Hotel. Steven Lemley is bartender of the year!! DELICIOUS, fancy concoctions!!
And here’s one more I’ll tease you with of the crazy night….
Ok, well, it’s not even night here. But this is where I stop documenting our deviant behavior for public consumption. What happens in NOLA stays in NOLA.
But if you’re heading here we would definitely recommend splurging on French Quarter RV Resort due to proximity to the action. But be sure to check their website to see if you’ll be there during a “special occasion” that will run you more money.
We’ll be back New Orleans!!!
