NOLA in Pictures

Here are some of my favorite pictures from my New Orleans trip!

Gator on our tour of Honey Island Swamp

 Gator know as "Stumpy" because of his missing tail

Honey Island Swamp

 Saint Louis Cathedral at Jackson Square

 Window on Pirate's Alley. Notice the Mardi Gras beads. They're everywhere. They don't even bother trying to clean them up. This was noticable on St.Charles Street which is part of the parade route. The beads were strung on the telephone lines, electrical lines, haning in trees, etc.

 The Anne Rice house in the historic Garden District. Love the Tim Burton-esque tree limb.

View from the front porch of the slave's quarters at the Laura Creole Plantation

So dear readers, have you ever been to New Orleans? Pre or post Katrina? What did you think? If you haven't been do you have any desire to visit?


  1. Wow, I'm loving the pictures. I've never been to New Orleans but I wanna go!

  2. Thanks the swamp/gator pictures turned out way better than I could have imagined. It's always hard to tell on those little camera screens! This was my 2nd trip to NOLA. It's a really cool city!!!!

  3. Nice pictures. The swamp pic is my favorite.

  4. Ames, I had a TON of Swamp Pictures that was my favorite. It makes me want to go read a cajun romance like Lucky's Lady or something :)

  5. Some very nice pictures there, Mollie :) Never been to NO... how was the weather? Or should I say, the humidity?

    I'm with Ames, the swamp pic is my favorite... but seriously, gators!!!

  6. Gorgeous photos, Mollie!!!

    I love the swamp picture and the window in Pirate's Alley. I have never been to NOLA, but I would definitely love to visit there someday.

    Thanks for sharing!

  7. These make me even more excited to go! Thanks again for all the suggestions!
