Just returned, from fantastic trip

Had originally planned a road trip, to San Antonio, Austin, then on to N'Orleans, then maybe Pensacola Beach, BUT, Carol said that was too  much driving (she was right) and we decided on flying to Nawlins, then a leisurely trip along the coast, and spending a few days in Pensacola Beach.
Fantastic trip I'd recommend to anyone.
I can see why SOOO many Southerners are soo fat. The food is really good, and there's LOTS of it. I've never seen such HUUUGE portions, that were so good, at bargain prices. Esp seafood.
Had no idea Nalwins had so many museums, incl one of the best WWII museums in the world, plus amazing historical tours and museums/exhibits about the Civil War, War of 1812, History of Louisiana and New Orleans, plantations, swamp tours, nature walks and walking tours of different sections of the city, incl the above ground graveyards. FYI, Uber is the way to go....
And then there's Bourbon St, where I met Don Julio, had a brush with Hurricanes and heard a bunch of AMAZING live music, and then won good at Harrah's Casino.
Then it was on to Biloxi, Destin and Pensacola Beach, where the beaches are some of the best in the world.
More specifics later, but glad we flew in and out N.O. Had enough windshield time in the rental car, without the 1300 mile drive home. Now, I need a little recovery time....
