The Other Streets of the French Quarter

This incessant damp and cold as summer sidles - embarrassed, undecided - out of Alberta this year forces the contrast of just a month ago where the streets in the French Quarter were wet but warm and spilling over with a fighting attitude. Although the skies were grey, the colours were vibrant. Katrina and BP are not being allowed to defeat this brave, resolute city.

Was it really only a month ago that we were there? Here are some views of and from the streets close to Bourbon Street, and mostly by day:

  2. Only wish had the time and money to go there

  3. if you go, take me with you!!!! love the beauty in the sweet faces...

  4. before i pushed "send" for the comment above, the "word" in the word verification box said "bills" - i think blogger is trying to tell me where my priorities need to be...but still - if you go, take me!!!!


I love to hear from you! Please leave me a leaf to read ...
