A lovely way to start a day!!

My friends who are turning into my full time tour guides, Paula and Jerry gave me great instructions how to get to the RV park in New Orleans but first I had to cross the State line into

Nov2 011

I arrived at the RV park just before noon it is a Passport America park so I got the rate for half price but it still was 42 dollars but a bargain really when you consider it is 2 blocks from the French Quarter!!

I booked a van tour for 2pm so I had a couple of hours to spare so spent it sunbathing, reading and in the hot tub!!

Nov2 014The park is very clean and well organised but they do have lots of rules…..sometimes I don’t do well with rules!!!

The 10 seater van arrived at 2pm and was full and we went on a great tour of the city…..I learned a great deal and it might be interesting for you to Google the city and read about the Hurricane that ravished and caused so much loss of life and property!!

Brad Pitt came to the city and funded the building of 30 homes and this one below is one of them interestingly enough it is built on pontoons!!

It was now about 7.30pm and I have to admit I was beginning to feel just a little bit uncomfortable…there was a lot of street drinking going on and lots of “alternative” folks around so I grabbed a cab and came back to the RV park…….it was a great afternoon!!

Just a relaxing evening for me and tomorrow I move further west..getting closer to Mexico!!
