In front of St. Louis Cathedral on a beautiful Saturday, the streets are filled with music and art.
The mighty Mississippi. It took folks 8 hours to cross this bridge during the Hurricane Katrina evacuation.
For our afternoon activity, we scheduled a tour of the Garden District. After an unscheduled fast hike to get there, we met our tour guide, Jane. She was not quite as good as Joe, but a storyteller, nonetheless. Could have shortened some of her stories... but we won't elaborate on that. Of course, I was a bit distracted during the first part of the tour because I was receiving Twitter messages from Boiler Football with a play by play of the Boilers' win over Michigan! Boiler Up!
This is the house used in the movie, "The Curious Case of Benjamin Buttons", which our tour guide thought should be owned and loved by everyone. I heard one of the tourists say (under her breath) "such a stupid movie." I have not seen it, but will probably try to see it and come to my own conclusion. It will be fun to see the house, anyway.
This house, in the Garden District, was recently purchased by Sandra Bullock and her tatooed husband, Jesse James (at least I think that's his name).
