, Let me just take a minute to thank you for the contributions you make to this site. I know it's a very tedious and time consuming task. But whenever I do a search, your trip reports are always there to help.
Right now you have me wanting to jump on a plane and go back to NOLA. It was a great trip and a great time.
I arrived on Saturday and went to Desire for lunch. I was sitting in the window watching the festivities outside. (I just noticed You, Johnny and Doug in the picture, to the left)
That's Michael Stern at the podium talking about the worlds largest Po' Boy that was being assembled.
I didn't get to try the Po' Boy because I was having my way with a plate of these
You just can't get oysters like this anywhere else. And what's a trip to NOLA without turtle soup laced with sherry.
This was a very good soup. A little shy on the turtle meat, but very tasty.
Without a doubt, the best part of the trip was all the people I got to meet. Sundancer7(Paul), Iwannago, Mariton, Doug(I thought he had orange nail polish), Bruce, Sue, Chris, Amy and I apologize if I missed anyone.
We had a good time walking, talking and eating at the festival.
My favorite pic is Paul trying to give away his duck cracklin's.
Not many takers for that one.
The meat pies were very good. That's Johnny in the blue shirt walking away with a pie.
And that's Johnny standing in line for a Snowball. Personally, I wouldn't eat anything that would remind me of the weather back home.
A nice pic of Mariton and Iwannago.
A well deserved break.
One thing about NOLA, where ever you go you will find live music. The street musicians are excellent.
