Where are we today ?
Pretty warm last night windows open for a great sleep, we will take this wonderful weather while it is here. Our plan for today was to wander over to New Orleans and the French Quarter this morning. But the weather forecast said 90% chances of thunderstorms. Well we never believe those weather guessers much anyway. So put our money on the 10% sunshine and guess what we won the lottery!
Just before 9 am we hopped in the car for the one hour drive, most of it on the 24 mile long bridge/causeway across lake Pontchartrain.
|We have done this drive many times|
|the causeway goes on forever|
|only in the sunny south|
|not for us|
|We tried the famous Beignets a few years ago, a fried pastry|
covered with icing sugar, not something we need to do again
|good live bands everywhere|
|inside the Cafe was packed|

After our awesome filling lunch a light supper tonight, simple and easy Turkey wieners, beans and toast, light and easy.

Thanks again for stopping by and hope you had as good of a day as we did. Gotta love it when the good weather overcomes the odds, we won again!
