Weekend in New Orleans

Is it not simply wonderful when you are able to mark off another item on your list?  The latest checkmark went down on my list of "States I've Visited" beside Louisiana, number 31 of 50.  Mainly remaining are the New England states, with a few others scattered throughout the country.
The weekend of the 2nd, we went for a couple's weekend to New Orleans.  It was, in one word, perfect.
Perfect timing.  Perfect weather.  Perfect everything.
