on our first full day in New Orleans, we visited two plantations on River Road. The St Joseph plantation and the Laura plantation. Then dinner at Mothers of New Orleans and a walk through Bourbon Street where Rob tried Absinthe for the first time.
We drove past this classic fire truck just about every day and finally had to go photograph it. We ended up speaking to the owner who told us more about it’s history and his plans for it. It’s a 1956 Ward LeFrance Pumper (Fire Truck)
Dar and Rob loaded up the two of us into their little mini house and took us on their adventure. This is what it’s been like for us. Two cats in an RV, on the road, around the countryside experiencing all the sights, sounds, smells, birds and dogs.
We looked for a reputable dolphin tour in the Portland area and came across The Dolphin Connection which sails out of Ingleside. Irv and Sonja have worked with the same families of dolphins for over 16 years and know them by name, so we figured they would be good tour guides.
Our entire stay in Texas, revolved around the Fulton Oysterfest. When Dar found out it was going to be held a week after we had scheduled to move on to New Orleans, we quickly changed our plans and added another week to our stay at Sea Breeze. Dar is crazy about seafood and loves her raw oysters, where Rob doesn’t really care for them. Funny enough, we got on local Corpus Christi television too after being filmed by the Caller Times. This is our experience of the Oysterfest in Fulton.
