I just got back from a trip to New Orleans and the gulf coast of Mississippi. This trip was planned a few years back and then Katrina came along and put a stop to it! Now that things are in order, I was finally able to go. I loved the Gulf Coast & Louisiana.
Here are some pictures….
GATORS IN THE BAYOU…..
Houses on stilts…..
Aren’t they cool???? I took these pictures in Mississippi. I was told the stilts helps to stop flood damage. I wonder what happens if the wind picks up….
New Orleans has gorgeous homes. I could walk around all day and admire them. I found the shot gun homes adorable.
New Orleans, with its tree lined streets and the lovely older homes reminds me of the Diamond District in Lynn. I live in the Diamond District which is on the North Shore of Boston
While I enjoyed the landscape and housing I was not too keen on the food. Some of the restaurants served Swamp Rat(Nutria). I opted for a Poor Boy sandwich instead.
see above for the nutria..ewwww! Its too ugly to post a pic.
