Checking Out the Mississippi

We had breakfast at  CafĂ© Envie in the French Quarter. Jennifer had a sandwich wrap and I had 3 ham omelets. Both of ours came with hash browns. I am not a big hash brown fan but these were good and Jennifer also really liked them and she is a hash brown fan.

We then drove down along the Mississippi to find some swamplands. Saw the wide river of the Mississippi, some nice views but no swamp.

Back to the French Quarter to the French Market and got some more Pralines. Then went to Coops for some Jambalaya. Good and spicy with ham and rabbit. Walked around some more and found May Bailey's Bar. The sign outside the bar said it had $3 wine during happy hour. So we decided to go in. We made it 3 minutes before happy hour was over. We each got a nice glass of Riesling. The bar is really nice to look at and our Riesling was really good and it was only $3. The bar is connected to the Dauphine Hotel and it once was a brothel.

Then went back to the Gumbo Shop but this time for a blackened chicken po-boy. This completed the trying of the foods that specifically came from New Orleans. Then back to the hotel for our last night.
