Feelin’ Good Back Home in the Bywater New Orleans
There’s just something about coming home, you know? After nearly twenty hours in the car we can’t even begin to tell you how welcome the sight of my old New Orleans neighborhood, the Bywater, was. The area has really developed in the last three years with new stores and restaurants. With so much new, we were so glad to see that the great mix of people with friendly pets still remains. They were so happy to see us too!
We stayed with a friend on Mazant Street for the month of November, spending most of oour days lazing about on the porch. People watching (two-footed and four-footed) is one of willie’s favorite things to do and he loved to say hello to anyone who walked by. Everyone is just so nice here!
While in New Orleans we toured part of the 9th Ward and the French Quarter, but perhaps the highlight of our trip was meeting local artist, Dr. Bob, and his friendly companion George. Dr. Bob creates absolutely stunning folk art from all sorts of media and we really enjoyed hanging out with him and listening to his stories. Thanks for the hospitality Bob and George!
