New Orleans with DD

I wanted DD to experience the French Quarter during the day and not packed with Mardi Gras people. I did manage to find the Gumbo Shop so DD could have some Creole food. We each got a different Creole dinner. DD got seafood Okra gumbo, chicken espagnole with rice with garlic mashed potatoes and hot bread budding for dessert. I got chicken andouille gumbo, the Creole combination platter which included shrimp creole, jambalaya, red beans and rice with macque choux corn and a chocolate brownie pie. It was very good.

We then walked around some more in the French Quarter. Lots of street musicians around. One group had a guitar, violin, a washboard and a bucket bass. It was pretty cool to see and they sounded good. We also took a walk down Bourbon Street. DD liked looking at all the people. I got a hand grenade and we hung out on one of the balconies just people watching. When we got tired of walking we went to the car and started home.
