Harriet's Shadow Shot Sunday at
And here is my contribution, a shadow shot of St. Anthony's Garden, behind St. Louis Cathedral in New Orleans, Louisiana. The statue casts a magnified shadow of Jesus Christ onto the cathedral at nighttime!
John has a lunch break every noon so we always
strolled the French Quarter with him too. I love this Hotel Monteleone building. I think it is on St. Charles where the antique stores are.
They still have horse carriages and cable cars. And one night John and I were walking around, we saw a bunch of cops in horses and also in police cars. We later on found out that there were 2 poeple shot at random. That's one reason we do not take AJ and ma with us at night. We leave them at the hotel. New Orleans is fun but is still is a high crime area.
Bling everywhere! I love the chandy with a big crystal ball hanging. Vanna, are you looking? I took these pics for you!
I took AJ to the Aquarium. I took a lot of pictures inside but I will share them on another Saturday.
St. Louis Cathedral in Jackson Square is the oldest continual operating Catholic cathedral in US.
Cafe du Monde is famous for their beignets and coffee.
in a cute little cafe right on St.Charles St. next to the Supreme Court.
AJ also ordered beignets. I had 2 bites. I know! I know, I cheated. But you cannot NOT have beignets when you are in New Orleans, lol. They were so good. I wish I was allowed to eat all of at least one. As you can see, the tray got emptied pretty fast.
The Natchez Riverboat is parked right on the Mississippi River. The ticket line was very long. Don't you think we should have one like this in Natchez? It existed in the olden times and I think they are trying to bring it back.
John spotted some street musicians. He brought ma close to be serenaded and she really enjoyed it clapping her hands while they were singing to her.
I did not buy anything in the antique shops. John spotted something he likes and he was thinking he would pay up to $200 for it. When he checked the tag, it was like $3600, lol. You see why we did not buy anything? Their prices were too high.
