We took a break 2 weeks ago and headed south...
the weather was absolutely beautiful!
when this family vacations we are not looking to head to the amusement park or the nearest tourist trap
we love to experience the culture of our surroundings, the food and the folk! Here are the children eyeing some oysters in the french quarter of New Orleans
new specimens to catch in buckets and nets!
we spent the other days off our deck on the beach of the
Gulf of Mexico
we woke to the sounds of the waves
and fell asleep to them as well
and we ate and ate...
Local of course!
Yes, all of the children tried the crawfish
- they love to try new foods
we did many boils... You could pull up to the local stores and buy the fresh catch of the day
we fished to eat too!
We liked that we went 2 weeks ago when the areas were not over populated with tourists... It was quiet :)
some New Orleans music culture!
we had a great time. However, vacations are also tiring...
I have been playing major catch up these last 2 weeks
know what I mean?
