New Orleans

Jackson Square a/k/a Place D'Armes with St. Louis Cathedral in the background 

Five years after Hurricane Katrina and we're in New Orleans.  Mr. Wonderful focused on dining opportunities, while I enjoyed walking in the French Quarter looking at the shops and in the Garden District looking at the houses. Everywhere we walked or drove, both here and in southern Mississippi, looked good.  We saw a great deal of progress from the devastation wrought by the storm. Admittedly we did not see everything and there are still signs of storm damage, but what we did see gives us a lot of confidence in the future here.
