After finding a place to park Linda's truck....bigger than ours, walking with the TomTom it took us directly to Coops Place in the French Quarter, having to pass Cafe Du Monde en route. This created the dilemma of Beignet first, or lunch first. Resisting temptation we followed TomTom to Coops Place. Unique to say the least. Not a lot bigger inside than our rig, the place was packed. We sat next to a local who said this was the place to eat....and eat we did...Phenomenal shrimp gumbo....followed by a shrimp po boy....Thank you brothers.....another 3 pounds gained!
The walk back to the truck did take us once again to Cafe Du Monde....no bypass this time and another pound or two added after the Beignet! For those back in Alamosa, a beignet is similar to a sopapilla with loads and loads of powdered sugar on them instead of using honey.
Here are some sights we saw along the way. This guy stood like a statue and then suddenly moved.
As for New Orleans, a lot of Katrina leftovers remain, but a lot has been done since we passed through some 16 months ago, but there is much left to do. Still many buildings, homes, stores etc. remain to remind us of what the devastation must have been. All in all, a most interesting place I would like to visit again, and try more of the great food available! Okay....I'm done....enjoy your mystical journey!
As ever Remember you are loved!
