Walking Around the French Quarter, Day 3 & 4

We had a great two days at the Royal Barracks.  Our next stay was at the Inn on St. Peter.  Our room was bigger and there were more windows.  It did not have quite the same amount of character, though.  It definitely didn't offer the amount of hospitality that the Royal Barracks did.  The "continental breakfast" was comprised of pastries and coffee.  But, whatever.  We enjoyed our stay there.

 The Inn on St. Peter.

The entertainment found on the streets of New Orleans:

 He sits as still as a statue.

 He gets in this position and stays that way for long periods of time.  I mentioned before that this our second trip to New Orleans.  We visited two years ago for our honeymoon.  This guy was doing this two years ago, as well.  He was the only person we recognized from two years ago.

 He juggles knives while balancing on that little slab of wood.  It's crazy.  He's very entertaining.

There's no shortage of musical entertainment on the streets of New Orleans.  There was also a couple that was dancing.  It was a great show.  

Halloween is a very celebrated holiday in New Orleans.


We also ate a lot while in New Orleans.

This little diner is on Bourbon Street.  We had breakfast there and it was wonderful. 

 One of my favorite restaurants in the French Quarter is Red Fish.  My birthday fell on Tuesday, but since we were traveling back to Dallas on Tuesday, we celebrated my birthday over dinner on Monday evening.  I ate entirely too much and even enjoyed some dessert.  The grilled red fish here is excellent.

This is how we ended our vacation.  I'm not sure if you are able to read it, but it says that there was a main water break and that the city of New Orleans is unsure if the water was contaminated or not.  So, to be safe, don't shower or drink the water.  We got up on Tuesday sans showers and headed home.

Good bye NOLA.
