I am in New Orleans! I’ve reunited with my high school best friends for a long weekend, taking advantage of one of my friends living here – but she is moving back to California in June so we had to squeeze in a visit.

I have been to New Orleans before, 19 years ago, but both times, I was on tour nearby (well, 3 or so hours away), so we rented a car to drive in for the day. I’ve never stayed here. The list of things to do is quite lengthy, leaving us trying to jigsaw our wish list into an agenda. 

The first day was the French Quarter, for rum drinks, beignets and voodoo.  

 
I wore my khaki skirt and a hat from the Gap, purchased ages ago, but ended up buying a cute straw cloche from Goorkin Bros.  

 
Next up on our agendas – a swamp tour, the zoo, cemeteries, the pharmacy museum, a plantation, the steam boat, more rum drinks, and crawfish étouffée. Hopefully we can squeeze it all in!
