A two day "get away"

My SIL and I decided we needed a little R and R so we took off for a little vacation away from everything. A fun short 'girl' trip.  We did not travel far.  Our original idea was to go to the Gulf coast in Mississippi but we ended up in New Orleans instead.  It was a beautiful day.  We had coffee and beignets and then a nice walk around the quarter,  It was sunny and there was a cool breeze.  Very cool considering it was June in Louisiana.  We had a great lunch at my favorite place on Decatur Street just up from Jackson Square.  Mespairos (probably not spelled right)   is one of the best places to eat if you are in the area.  Great New Orleans eats with large portions and very reasonable....Cash only place...I love it.

here is a photo I took of Jackson iphone takes great pics!

We took off to the North Shore to find the "Bra Geini', a place where they really know how to fit you with the right bra. LOL we laughed so much while there!  Very nice people and a great selection of all kinds of neat underware.....(I told you it was a girl trip!)

We then went shopping in Metairie.  We found a nice inexpensive motel in Kenner.

here is a photo of the motel pool at dusk...... very quiet and relaxing place.....

If you ever need a nice place to go to relax and/or to experience loads of history, the French Quarter is the place to go to.

We had a nice two day rest and came home refreshed!
We just might have to do that again really soon!
