    Default Live from the levee and the NATCHEZ

    Six months since I've been here, but what a first day! Our approach to MSY was from the east, so we were over the city and I could see the NATCHEZ down bound around Louisa St. I was able to get my bike and golf clubs out of storage, get checked in to my corner balcony room at LeRichelieu, and get over to the boat for the 2:30 trip. What a nice sight, the line went way down the wharf, over 600 on that trip. It has been good this spring, and this weekend they've got 2 late charters for Jazzfest in addition to the regular trips. It was sunny and a balmy 81 when I arrived, but as is my custom, clouds and a cold front came with me - but this cold just meant 70 or so. After an afternoon on the roof, I had small orders of jambalaya, gumbo, and bread pudding at Masperos, after which I waddled back to LeR. My bikes tires needed a big shot of air after being idle so long, so first item today is to use my new air compressor. After a brief nap(I had gotten up at 3:30 for my flights, it was back to Toulouse for the dinner cruise, which I narrated while the Dukes were on break. It being cloudy and cool, I retreated to the pilot house, where I amazed them with my coming into the 21st century with this iPad mini2. The day ended with a glass of Pinot noir on my balcony as I watched film crew trucks parked up Barracks by Doc's, but don't know what it was for. After pumping up the tires and riding to Rouses(the old A&P) for supplies, it will be over for the 11:30 with a new load of cookies - yesterday's were inhaled. After that, maybe golf and then back for the dinner trip. I'm having trouble posting pix, but here's something new or rather updated. It is:
