Today, the 18th, we took off in the jeep and headed toward New Orleans. About 10 miles down the road we found Pontchartrain Causeway (bridge) that took us across Lake Pontchartrain. We have never traveled on a bridge that was so long (24 miles); the other side was not visible until we got about half way across. Took over 20 minutes at 65 mph!
We finally got to the other side, found the visitors center, and then the French Quarter. Spent the day just walking the streets and shooting pictures. Had a great lunch sitting on the balcony of a restaurant and enjoying watching the people below on Bourbon Street.
Nothing special with the pictures just shots that Dick thought might be a little different than most you would see so not much to write about.
Line-up of horse and carriage's waiting for tourists.
The lady in the window is a manikin but hard to tell until you get close.
A little run down...
