From there to here

No wonder I have have a cold. (Picture on the left from vacation. The one on the right today.)

Vacation was wonderful. Flew into Pensacola. Two of my dearest friends, Danny and Aileen, picked me up and we went to the beach. Aileen played with Iris, their little girl, in the sand. Ian, their little boy, and I played the wave game; stand where the water line runs up on the sand and try and not let the waves get your feet wet.

The next day we went into New Orleans. I love this city. Every time I visit I fall in love all over again.

We were the perfect tourists. Munched down beignets at Cafe du Monde. Wondered the French Quarter. Watched jazz musicians and jugglers. Went into several art galleries. I bought a painting outside St. Louis. Artists line the square. Sublime.

The next day we wondered the streets of Mobile. I saw the Mardi Gras museum. Mobile hosts their own Mardi Gras parade every year.

Relaxed the rest of the day and went to a movie that night.

Love you Danny and Aileen.

Mardi Gras museum? Isn't that a Girls Gone Wild DVD? ... So did you get some beads ;)

Sounds like a perfect time. Welcome back!

Jealous of your beignet eating! Sounds like a great trip. Weather change is a bitch, isn't it?
