The Pontchartrain Landing RV Park provides a shuttle service to the French Quarter so we hopped aboard at ten this morning. Fog had blanketed everything around us and I didn’t know if photos were going to be possible. The first thing we did was head to the Cafe du Monde for beignets and coffee. It was as if we couldn’t get enough sugar. From there it was onto Jackson Square and the St. Louis Cathedral. Upon entering the cathedral one is just awestruck at the painted ceilings, the stained glass and the essence of incense that lingers in the air. We meandered the walkways and alleys taking in Bourbon Street, the Wharf and some shopping in the French Market. The fog didn’t lift until well after noon but it mattered not, as it allowed for some interesting photos. The bridge to Algiers, the ferry and the trolleys were barely visible through the mist. I couldn’t pass sampling some jumbalaya while Robin opted for the best gyro I’ve ever tasted. After lunch, we took in the French Market, the Wharf, Bourbon Street and some musicians plying their trade at the French Market Cafe. As we sauntered down Bienville Street we noticed the trucks, the blaring lights and all the props. This is my second time in New Orleans that I watched a film being made. The first one was with Brad Pitt in “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button“. This one is called “Earthbound” and stars Kate Hudson. I’m not sure Nicholas Cage is in the movie but he was there on site. But then again he lives here in the area and perhaps he was just watching the action, just as we were. There shall be more of the city and our exploits tomorrow. Seven hours in the city walking around has taken its toll on me and I’m bleaking out here as I type. So enjoy the slideshow.
