The French Quarter was as lovely as ever. I am not a party animal, so I don't care for all the drinking and partying that goes on there, but it is fine during the day. I do find the city to generally be dirty and smell bad, but I enjoy visiting once in a while.
We had dinner at Delmonico, one of Emeril's restaurants. I was not impressed at all. I grew up shrimping and pulling heads off live shrimp out next to the water, but when I pay that much for a meal, I don't expect to have to pull the heads and tails off the shrimp in my shrimp stew. Guess you are paying for the name.
I visited the D Day Museum several years ago, but Jim and our friend had not been so we toured it. They have added a 4 D Movie. It is now called the National WWII Museum. The boats used at the landings on D Day were designed and built in New Orleans by Andrew Higgins. They are called LCVP boats (Landing Craft, Vehicle, Personal). They are the reasons the museum is located here. I love history and museums like this one.
