Our second day in New Orleans, we took a good portion of the day to visit and photograph the Garden District. Loved the architecture and even found a chicken living in the front yard of one of the homes.
Day 2 of our discovering New Orleans we went straight to one of the Crescent City’s oldest attractions, Cafe du Monde. On Decatur, kitty corner to the square, and just down the street from the French Market, we simply had to venture a little further on for more adventure, and find it we did, in the form of the best food in New Orleans – Meals From the Heart!
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.
Rob wanted to allow his cats to experience the ocean, so we took the ferry to Port Aransas and then parked the RV on the beach. Part of the trip was to do a photo shoot for an RV magazine we had written an article for about first time RVing so we wanted the shots to be spectacular. Then we enjoyed a nice evening meal at Fishermans Wharf complete with sunset over the marina photos.
We drove to Nuevo Progreso Mexico for the day, crossing the border from Texas into Mexico and shopping all day long. We ate at a couple of places, one of which we liked very much, the other with friends from Seabreeze RV Park, and that was… well, “safe”. Our reasons for going to Mexico differed greatly from our fellow RV park residents. Was it because we are Canadian? or because we are younger and just travel differently?
