With the Mardi Gras parade season over, we decided to see some different sights and went on a Swamp/Bayou tour. Unfortunately, alligators don't like cold and windy days so the boat ride was uneventful. We did however all get to pass this little fella around.

On a more pleasant day, weather wise, we jumped on the St Charles Street Car and spent the day walking through the Garden District and Magazine St.

One of our stops was Lafayette Cemetery No.1.

As you can see, we took plenty of photos in this City of the Dead.

And then... the work ran out. What was supposed to be a 5 month job abruptly turned into 2 months and I was sent home. Although I was disappointed that I was going home early, it was truly an amazing and historical time to have been in New Orleans. The Saints run at the big game and Super Bowl win which then spilled right into a wild Mardi Gras. Lots of happy people who really know how to celebrate.

And the day before our flight, we finally got out for some Disc Golf.

Gorgeous day and a nice 24 hole course in Lafreniere Park. Chris, Dave and Jamie chillin' at the basket.
