Tourist Trip to the French Quarters and Weather Delay (Nov 18-19)

First day started out a planning day for navigating to Texas.

    

We took our first ever Uber ride to the French Quarters for lunch at New Orleans Creole Cookery.

      

              

We stopped in several bars along Bourbon and Royal streets, purely for the reason for Ron to check the football scores.  Really?

       

           The artist and entertainers were busy as hundreds of people looked on.

We rode the marina bus back to the boat where Bryce, Jane and Henry (another sail-boater) joined us until the cold front hit and started rocking the boats.  The wind off of lake Pontchartrain was brutal – see the wind apps below.

          The wind persisted through out the next day.  We hunkered down, put out extra ropes and fenders and rode out the weather.

We also packed back up the shorts, switched the A/C’s back to Heat, and brought back out the gloves and sweatshirts!
