Early summer in New Orleans (NOLA) is very much like early summer in Houston but with French Quarter flair!
Just back from another fun visit. I could very easily hang out there for a while longer every time. The people are friendly and creative, and they have a love for living. The tourists aren’t so bad either.
I found everything to stimulate the senses with visual imagery, eateries and musical venues galore. The French and Spanish architecture and urban design transported me back to the same in Mexico so I felt very much at home.
In my early morning jog in the French Quarter I saw the locals heading off to work, nuns heading off to mass, and the street washers at work to keep the streets in wonderful state for the new day.
The St. Louis Cathedral is a wonderful place to pray and meditate with beautiful Gregorian chants to give you a respite from the troubles of the world.
I set up my easel and captured several early morning sights. Towards the last of my stay there were a few sprinkles, and the rain that refreshed the evening drew me into the wonderful courtyards with their lush vegetation.
As I share some of the a la prima works with you I am already planning my next NOLA rendezvous.
