Today I hopped on the scooter and made my way toward downtown N.O. and the French Quarter. I’m not sure why they call it that? Some of the side streets can get congested, The streets aren’t very wide and there’s 100’s of work trucks and delivery trucks parked and taking up 1/2 the road. I am glad I didn’t take the RV downtown.
The Honda scooter works perfect for exploring N.O. I can pull up and park ANYWHERE without anyone batting an eye. I didn’t pay a single cent to park anywhere. Even the police are ok with all the scooters. I wore my nerdy orange vest for more visibility.
The really keep the French Quarter area clean. Everywhere people were washing the sidewalks and streets or painting the historic homes.
Some of the homes are so cute and whimsical. Homes usually aren’t cute or whimsical but they are here in N.O.
I think I found one of the gay bars?
Yup, I did.
Nice big park in the middle of town.
Random building pics.
The inviting and well decorated covered porches are just awesome!
The famed Café Du Monde in the French Quarter. It was busy because I was there around noon but there still didn’t appear to be a wait for a table.
The mule towed carriages were neat but too touristy for me. Talking with an owner, I found out that above 95 degrees, they do not do any tours. It could be worse for the mules I suppose. They still don’t look too happy or excited.
More Café Du Monde… out back this time.
And I’m back “HOME” for lunch.
