Oh, The Places You'll Go! - #5

And will you succeed?
Yes! You will, indeed!
(98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed.)

Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting.
So... get on your way!
  ~Dr. Seuss

Wednesday was our last full day in New Orleans and we all agreed a swamp tour was in order. A swamp tour on an airboat to be exact. Here are a few pictures from the excursion. It was fun and fast and the bayou was beautifully peaceful (except when the airboat was going :).

Bayou grasshopper.

The Bayou.

Hungry Mama Gator.

Alligators really like chicken.

Joey on the airboat:

Marshmallows are a swamp tour guide's best friend (because chicken is pretty expensive):

Beautiful Bayou

Baby Gator:

Those people are not very effectively trying to get out of the way of our picture:

Ibis on the Bayou:

Two large alligators:

She just grabbed the chicken leg:

Very fun!

After the swamp tour we took the green line streetcar through the Garden District. Gorgeous Architecture. No pictures. It is hard to take decent pictures from the streetcar.

Later that evening we took the red Canal line to get ice cream....

at Angelo Brocato Ice Cream. Pretty fabulous although I had a chocolate dipped Canoli!

The end! Good-bye New Orleans. Hello Savannah!
