Here we are in New Orleans and having a great time. We are staying a few blocks from Canal St., which intersects Burbon St. We have been walking all over, mostly around the French Quarter and even worked out today. This was much needed since most of our adventures here revolve around food. The food is great! Jambalaya, Gumbo, Crab Cakes, Fresh Shrimp….it’s all so wonderfully tasty, and let’s not forget the beignets from Cafe Du mond, powdered sugar everywhere.

We have also been driving the coastline from New Orleans to Bay St. Louis. We started taking some pictures, but had to stop. The mass devistation makes your heart drop deap into your stomach. It makes me feel so greatful for what I have. We bought fresh tamales (so good) from a man selling them at a stand where a town used to be. His house was distroyed in the hurricane and found his kitchen appliances several blocks from his home. He had just paid off his mortgage a couple week before the hurricane. There is still so much clean-up for this area.

I hope you do notice the full smile in this pictures. That’s right, no gap! I got my tooth on the 8th, the day before Sean got here. Thank goodness. But, in case you are still wonderiing – I can take it out at any point for practical jokes, scaring little kids, etc.
