Our last day here in New Orleans. Tomorrow we'll fly to Los Angeles and Brisbane. We had a great trip through some of the Southern States of the USA.

Our friends had plans for today, so the Blogger and I trundled off, once again to the French Quarter. We walked our obligatory 45 minutes to the the French Markets and bought day cards for the trams. They call them Street Cars here. We jumped on the first tram which took us into the city, then changed to another tram that took us to the Modern Art Gallery. Carol eat your heart out, except it was shut. No worries we say, let's go to the Gallery of Southern Art, next door instead. Guess what. It was shut also. So we walked through the Garden District, looking for a Coffee Shop. No success, so we jumped onto the tram again which took us to Bourbon Street. We walked one block up Bourbon Street but didn't find it exciting so we walked up Royal Street until we found Mr B's Restaurant which served us a wonderful lunch.

After lunch we walked further along Royal Street, all along capturing the French Quarter atmosphere.

Mid afternoon we walked down to the riverfront and took another tram for a couple of stops and walked home.

Does anyone realise what I am saying here? Walked, walked, walked. I haven't walked so much in years. Luckily that will be over tomorrow.

But! I did manage to cature some images along the way.
