Our last day in New Orleans and living in the French Quarter. The alarm clock abruptly rang at 8:30 this morning, and I let it snooze until 9:00. We got up, got dressed and went for a stroll through the quarter. We headed down to cafe du monde only to see how incredibly crowded it was.
We started to stand in line to get seated outside, and then found that there were fewer people in line inside. Of course, of all the people inside nobody was getting up, and then we found out they did not take credit cards. Cash only. After that dish of bad news we got out of line and headed across the street to their store. I picked up a canister of coffee and chickory for Jeremy as a little thank you for taking pictures at the wedding.
After leaving the store, we walked around the block to this place that does black and white photography. The shots were amazing, but all of them were incredibly dull. Skyline pictures, riverfront pictures, pictures of people playing jazz… There was one picture, however, that caught my attention. It was of an old phone booth, not a wrap around phone booth, but just one on metal payphone stand. But the thing that made this shot amazing to me was that this phone booth looked as if it were in the middle of the woods. In the background all you could see were trees and fog flowing threw them. The contrast was fantastic. I know of no words to acurately describe it.
From there, the morning was shortening incredibly, so we headed back to the hotel, and started to pack. We didn’t get to do much this morning, but we did do quite a few things this week that I had never done before. I am so happy we picked New Orleans for our Honeymoon because it will be one that we will never forget.
