Our visit to New Orleans last month was so fun. New Orleans never disappoints. We hope to get there regularly now that we are in living in the South. The most humble cottages are as beautiful as the elegant mansions. Residential architecture in New Orleans is unparalleled. Just so pretty. Great restaurants, artistic people, excellent music venues, it is a special American city.
We rented a flat on Magazine Street in the Lower Garden District. Good location for moving around. I would not want to stay in the busy loud French Quarter. The apartment was stylish and very comfortable. Loved this tv wall, skirted table and Asian teak lamp in the second floor master.
There was a desk upstairs for work in the master bedroom with a comfortable king bed, nice linens and a bathroom with large soaking tub which I used every night.
Some Garden District and Uptown beauties......
Lafayette Cemetery No.1 on Washington St....
Audubon Park cypress roots.
A huge colony of Whistling ducks is living in the park these days.
This was a familiar site all over the Garden District and Uptown... it was one week after the conclusion of Mardi Gras so stuck beads were hanging in trees on St. Charles and Magazine streets.
Camellias were in bloom.
Of course the St. Charles streetcars were moving back and forth all day and night.
I love these small elegant cottages.
We ate at Commander's Palace,
La Petite Grocery and Emeril's Delmonico in the Garden District and a few other restaurants in other parts of the city, including Galatoire's in the French Quarter.
Each was a special experience.
Will post more New Orleans next time....
Thanks for visiting!
