Audobon Adventures!


We started our day with a hearty breakfast at Mother's...and yes, there ham is FABULOUS!
Then we hopped on the St. Charles Streetcar to ride to the Audobon Zoo. We got to see some of the homes in the Garden District.

The zoo was very nice and clean. The animal exhibits were nice. Lil Sis was disappointed that they had removed the kangaroos.

This little fox got up from his nap to pose for me...then he went back to sleep. It was so cute.

We walked back to the hotel to meet Dr. Hubby and then headed to the Audobon Aquarium of the Americas. I petted a stingray and a shark!

We had dinner at the Acme Oyster Bar in the French Quarter. The catfish was fantastic! Then we headed to the hotel to watch the premiere of "V" on abc. I look forward to seeing where they take this show.

After the show we caught the river streetcar and headed to Jackson Square to pick up some beignets from Cafe Du Monde. We decided to take a carriage ride around the French Quarter. We saw Cemetary #1, Bourbon Street at night, Royal Street, Brad Pitt's home, the most haunted place in New Orleans (LaLaurie Mansion) owned by Nicholas Cage, and LOTS of colorful characters hanging out on the sidewalks. I highly recommend a carriage ride after dark! Take your camera even if your hubby says "But it is dark...you won't need it."
Tomorrow we are going to tour Oak Alley Plantation (Brad Pitt's home in Interview With The Vampire and the location of Bo and Hope's 1st wedding on Days of our Lives).
