NOLA--DAY 2!!!

Oceana Grill, The Central Grocery Muffuletta (line was out the door and around the building), Cafe Du Monde for beignets (same fate as Central Grocery), Ralph and Kacoo's for hush puppies, Mr. B's (great BBQ shrimp!), Grenades for breakfast, bread pudding and hush puppies at every single one of these locations (we were on a quest to find out who had the best) and a 4 hour conversation over wine at the Ritz's courtyard-- I never knew vacation without shopping as the main objective could be this much fun and fulfilling!

A margarita to wash down the Grenade I had for breakfast. Although I must confess, I don't think I actually drank any of it.

Oh, did I forget to mention the crawfish, pralines, boudin balls and divinity (extremely sugary candy) stops the boys demanded we make on top of everything I previously mentioned?
The courtyard at the Ritz. We stayed at this hotel and I must say, I did not have any complaints:) I love it when a hotel has such lovely decor that you and your travel companions plan ways of making a dash for it with the room dividers, consoles, chairs, paintings; the list goes on... elegantly placed around the lobby.

From all of us: hope you enjoyed the pictures!

And... we're back to the Lone Star State (at the border of Texas and Louisiana)

Until next time


  1. Your pictures were amazing. I'm planning to go to New Orleans in late July. Thanks to your pictures I'm excited more than ever. I'm going to try and visit some of the places you mentioned.

  2. That's wonderful! and you will have loads of fun. In addition to eating, definitely do one of the offered tours they have there. It is worth it.
