My friend, Madison, sent me this awesome picture of the sunset at Olympic Park in Aurora, Colorado! Mother Nature never ceases to amaze me 🙂
So I went to New Orleans for the third time in a year and a half last weekend, and I loved every second of it (as usual). I don’t know what it is about NOLA, but it definitely has my heart. It may have to do with all the beignets, live music, Garden District homes, swamp creatures, spooky history, Bourbon Street, and overall just fun culture and people!
The one thing about this trip that was different from the others … I FINALLY got to do a swamp tour! The last two times I went, only a couple of us wanted to go and we couldn’t ever get everyone on board. Luckily this time I went with my two good friends, Megan and Jocelyn, and they were totally on board with the swamp tour.
Unfortunately we did not get to see many alligators due to the off-season, but we did see some interesting sites. We saw a baby alligator, which was neat, but the most hilarious and exciting part was seeing a random goat. As the guide steered us into the swamp village, where people can only get to their homes by boat, we saw one dock that had a goat on it. We moved in closer and saw the house actually had land. The goat was so confused and it was the cutest moment of the swamp tour to say the least. The scene got even more hilarious when a chicken and a peacock showed up. It is a pretty interesting choice of pets for a family living on a swamp.
While this blog is dedicated to mostly weather occurrences, I have decided to add more travel to it. I think it is important to share experiences and inspire others to travel and see the world. Only two significant weather events happened while we were in New Orleans: 1) a random downpour right before our ghost tour (we had to buy ponchos) and 2) a beautiful sunset, which you can see it below along with some other great photos from the trip!
I love NOLA and I can’t wait to go back! 🙂
One of my best friends, Paige, sent me these beautiful photos of the clouds over Lake Delta, NY this evening. She told me the pictures do not do justice for what her and our other friends, John and Sarah, could see in person. I wish I could have been there to see it live, but here are the pictures she sent me below…so captivating!
