Back from Vacation

by Kay~Kacey on 2/27/2013

Ah, yes. Back to the real world. We did a quick trip to New Orleans, then a 5 day cruise. Fabulous time. Great weather. Lots of sitting in the sun and reading. Came back to really lots of snow. ™. And then more snow. Sigh. Where is spring?

My favorite son, Timmy, was watching the puppies. When Mizzou could just not get their act together and cancel classes until after there was already too much snow…Timmy got stuck halfway home to our house. Some nice lady picked him up and drove him partway…but he ended up walking the rest of the way to our house in his topsiders with bags over them, his Stadium Grill waiter apron tied around his face, and no hat or gloves…TWO MILES. ¬†Anyway, he is now my favorite and I think he might even have unfrozen by now. I’ve pretty much not forgiven his finance prof for refusing to cancel the test they had that day so all these kids were out on the roads…and a ton…like hundreds and hundreds and hundreds had to abandon their cars.

We got home, shoveled out the driveway and rescued him. SuperGuy got to play with his tractor so all is right in his world.

Anyway, stuck inside during the snow storm, I had some time to play with my New Orleans photos. Want to see?? This is my favorite. Bourbon Street early morning.

Here is the train crossing in front of Riverwalk.  We walked and walked along the river. A good time.

I just love this big old marine cleats on the Mississippi River. We sat and watched the barges to up and down the river. Such fun.marine cleat on Mississippi river

I put some more images up on my Kay Pickens Fine Art Site if you want to see them. I’ll be adding to the New Orleans Gallery as I have time to edit more of the photos. I haven’t even looked at SuperGuys photos that he took. So many photos, so little time…But it was fabulous to get out of the cold for a week!

I think I’ll just go and watch out the window for the snow to melt and spring to come…

GORGEOUS first shot. All of them are great, but in love with the first. I would love to have the chance to visit and photograph there one day.

I love the New Orleans photos! I’m so jealous that you were able to go there. I wanted to go for New Year’s but we went on a cruise instead. Maybe next year.
