A gorgeous day in The Big Easy today, but so, SO humid! I think we started sweating the moment we stepped out of our hotel. We are staying right on Canal St, so we headed past dozens of colorful souvenir stores (all selling the same T-shirts, Mardi Gras masks, bead necklaces, etc) to Jackson Square.
Today we drove to San Antonio, with a detour into Austin. It was also a red letter day as we had our first lunch at our favorite restaurant, Cracker Barrel. We love the food, the endless coffee, the friendly staff and the gift store – OMG I could spend hours in the gift store alone!
