That’s not a word but that’s what we did today.
Took it easy this morning and then rolled into NO at about 10am. We wandered around for awhile and then I took my wife on a trip. Something that took her waaay outside her comfort bubble. She hates alligators. They really freak her out.
I had signed us up for a swamp tour. Not a chintzy airboat one but on a big swamp boat where you can walk around and actually learn something. We definitely got what we paid for and Megan surprised me by really getting involved, although she still breathed a big sigh of relief when we came back to dry land. I’m very proud of her.
Back in NO we wandered around some more, grabbed some dinner and then rode back to the hotel.
What I haven’t mentioned is that Megan was born in NO. She lived here for almost two years and has no memory of the place. Her mom however remembered their address and so we searched out Megan’s childhood home. It was a neat experience to be with her as she rediscovered her roots.
All good stuff.
