A day in New Orleans

From the very first time Erin came down here for a visit, we’ve been planning to visit the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas in New Orleans. Today, we finally made it. It was a wonderful afternoon, although the penguins weren’t in enough of a performance mood for Erin’s tastes. They were still cute, though.

Afterwards, we took a walking tour of some of the streets in New Orleans, on her quest to find shirts for herself and her mother. Still didn’t find anything, but we found a nice little used bookstore and slowly were raised to Heaven in the Southern Candymakers’ store.

My cousins Carl and Tammy host a Lenten seafood feast every Friday night during Lent, and tonight is the first one. Erin has been dying to go ever since she heard about them, and this is her first chance. It should be wonderful.
