Good morning from New Orleans.

The plan:
Walk a few blocks
Pickup at 8:30am(or there about) by New Orleans Tours (The actual pickup time turned out to be more like 9am.)
Arrive at Jean Lafitte Swamp Tour in time for the 10am swamp tour
Take a lot of pictures
Have an amazingly good time.
I’ll let you know how it goes.

Road trips like this require a lot of flexibility. Sometimes (often) things don’t go as planned. Occasionally I just have a bad experience. Yesterday, my self-importance was pricked by someone who I perceived as not showing me proper respect. They were flat out rude and obnoxious. I lost my joy, creative energy, and love. After a lot of thought, I finally got over it this morning when I brought my focus back to NOW.

During the swamp tour we floated past this rustic cabin which was used in several movies.

I saw, photographed, and held alligators. Watch for a future blog with more pictures from the tour.
After riding the bus back to the French Quarter we ate lunch at the Original Old Coffeepot restaurant. I had breakfast for lunch, an omelet.
A stop at a voodoo shop for Christy was followed by a stop at the grocery and a walk back to 905 Royal Hotel.

Let your light shine.
Let your love show
It’s a short ride
Down the long road.
