5th Stop, Snow Trip, Part 6, New Orleans

In New Orleans, we were visiting Ben’s  daughter, Maria, her companion, Duncan and their daughter Spring, all of whom live there.  Also visiting from Mexico was Ben’s daughter, Annalisa.  Ben’s sister, Bea was supposed to come too but at the last minute couldn’t make it.  So it wasn’t quite a family reunion but almost. 


On our first day there, we decided to ride the trolley from the end of the line into the center of town.

Maria, Duncan and Spring.  Spring’s first trolley ride.    We passed by the ‘hat shop’ and realized that they would probably have a hat big enough for Ben.

And we were right!  Spring looks pretty pleased too. 


We made a quick stop for a snack (more about it in another post) and finished the day with a seafood dinner.  Amazingly, the least expensive dinner of our few days there. 


It was so nice to be treated like a visiting guest, with someone else making suggestions of things to do and places to eat, driving us around and making it a wonderful relaxing time for us.
