New Orleans, Day 2

Our first full day in New Orleans began with Keith getting up super early for a run.  (I slept in.)   When he got back, we took advantage of the expanded continental breakfast that the hotel offered.  It was yummy, except for the waffle-making incident someone incurred. ;)  After I finished getting ready, we headed out to walk around the French Quarter. We found ourselves on the other side of Jackson Square for my first beignet in 10 years.  It was wonderful! I love the cafe au lait as well.  Even when you order one around Chicago, it just doesn't taste as good as when you have it at the Cafe du Monde. :) 

After eating, we walked down to the French Market, this amazing flea market that has basically everything you could imagine.  For lunch, we ate at the French Market Cafe - Keith had an alligator po-boy, dressed, and I had a muffaletta.  Thank goodness I only ordered half - Keith had to finish it! It was huge!
 
 After lunch, we walked around for awhile - checking out the inside of St. Louis Cathedral. I visited the St. Thersese statue and bought a few Holy cards in the gift shop for the kids. We went back to the hotel to rest before heading out again for dinner.

We chose a restaurant right down the street from the Dauphine - it was called Deanie's Seafood. I had the crab cakes. They were delicious!

After dinner, we headed back to Bourbon Street. We love to people watch, and this is the best place for that. We made our circle down Bienville to Royal - shopped on Royal a little - then went to head up St. Ann's back to Bourbon when we happened upon the filming of NCIS: New Orleans! Lucas Black was filimng a scene so we watched that for quite a bit.
