Sunday we visited Oak Alley Plantation near New Orleans. The drive is fairly easy and I believe it was about 45 miles from the French Quarter. The plantation is home to several movies including Interview With A Vampire. The home was very nice and it was a nice warm October day. It is right off the Mississippi river and I say it is worth the visit if you are near. The cost was $22 per person but they do offer Senior, Military and AAA discounts.
Mark another one off the bucket list. This weekend I took a 4 day trip down to New Orleans French Quarter and walked all over it. We stayed at the Hotel St. Marie which is one block off of Bourbon Street and right in the middle of the action. I don’t think I could have found a better hotel for the price in the area. Bourbon Street lived up to it’s reputation and then some. I will actually plan on going back. This photo was taken on Bourbon Street looking at Cat’s Meow Karaoke bar. Nice time to be had in there by the way.
While we were in Las Vegas we had a chance to tour Acrylic Tank Manufacturing which is the TV show Tanked. We were fortunate enough to get a picture with the General (Irwin Raymer) and my son.
