My job assisting the military often takes me all over the country (and world for that matter). I am often very busy and usually don't have much time off. I don't particulary like traveling without my wife but it's what I have to do to keep food on the table and prepare us for our cruising lifestyle. Recently I went down to Gulfport, MS and had the weekend off, so a co-worker and I headed over to "The Big Easy" for the day. We toured New Orleans, saw the sites and enjoyed some local food. Here is a glimpse of the French Quarter.
Not sure what this is other than a hotel but looked like a nice photo op
Here is where we enjoyed lunch! I had the cajun pasta. I actually ate gator!
Local street vendors and artists. I loved the colors and variety
