Default Live from the NOLA levee

Finally, back in New Orleans! I haven't been here since March. It is typical August here: sweltering humidity and heat, with afternoon thunderstorms. I arrived Monday afternoon and was able to ride the NATCHEZ dinner cruise. Its taking a little adjusting this visit, as I'm staying at a friend's condo on the other end of the FQ, but all I have to do is ride my bike straight down Toulouse to the wharf. Its nice to see the NATCHEZ pilothouse looming at the end of the trail. Today the birthday boy CCH and I are driving over to Belle River to see the MQ for ourselves. I suspect after that dismal setting we might just take the River Road back and stop at The Cabin restaurant to pick up our spirits. Hopefully I'll have a bunch of pix to post tonight of our findings. For now, here are a few NATCHEZ shots. In the second one, the crew is getting chocolate chip cookies for the first time in 5 months. In the third, that's Capt. Troy C. Delaney steering into the sunset. Capt. Don Houghton was Master.
