The weather finally turned a little cooler along the Gulf of Mexico during November so we decided to include New Orleans and French Market beignets in a trip that ended up in Baton Rouge.
New Orleans is usually rather hot and humid from May to October, so we steer clear unless it is necessary to go to the Big Easy.
The standard routine includes a reststop at the Jax Brewery building, a visit to the Cafe du Monde and then a walk around Jackon Square.
This particular occasion was the first time we were entertained by a couple playing violins. Others gathered around to enjoy the sidewalk concert in Jackson Square.
I can enjoy all types of music, and this particular couple were geared up toward a more high-brow style.
Happy Thanksgiving and good luck to those traveling along the Eastern Seaboard this week. It seems the weather is really going to be a bummer.
We missed being there when it snowed in October and maybe we'll get a little dusting this time.
