Day 16: Goodbye, NOLA!

Looks like we planned our trip pretty well. The weather today in NOLA was warming up and it was getting pretty humid!

Check out at the hotel was 11 AM, so we woke up, packed our bags, and headed out for breakfast. After breakfast at  Café Fleur de Lis, we headed back up to the French Market area to hit the gift shops one last time. We had to shop quickly to make it back to the hotel to retrieve out bags before 11 AM. Once our bags were safely secured with the hotel’s bell hop, we headed back out to explore a few different streets.

We found a wedding chapel!

Does anyone remember these?

Jackson Square was filled with artists selling their wares. Royal Street also had artists performing.

Looks like a remote controlled car, right?

Guess again!

We stumbled upon a quaint little coffee shop. (A favorite of Grenalda’s husband.)

The Fleurty Girl shop was busy this morning. We popped in to look around. (It’s also where the bubbles were coming from.)

One of my favorite types of performers was found near the French Market.

Our flights home were uneventful. Unfortunately, I didn’t make it home in time to go see the Stephen Kellogg show at the Rex, but I’m sure my feet with appreciate that more in the morning!

It was a great trip. Grenalda and her husband were great traveling partners. The countdown for The Rock Boat is now 98 days!
