Today we drove to New Orleans in our rental car- its only about 2 hours from Mobile. The food and the architecture are amazing!

Lunch at Napoleon House in the French Quarter with Susan and Foster from Quo Vadimus.

Beignets for dessert at Cafe du Monde. 

The St. James Cheese Company has so many varieties of yummy cheeses.

This is our favorite:

We had dinner at Irene's in the French Quarter- excellent food. 

We rode the trolley all day (it's a real bargain at $3) and walked over 8 miles sightseeing. I thought the French Quarter was rather dirty but very interesting. Definitely a tourist thing. On the trolley ride that took us past Loyola and Tulane Universities we saw block after block of huge old homes that were amazing. This area is much nicer than the French Quarter.
