2018.01.20 Crossing The Mighty Mississippi

Last updated: None
D'Arcy and I decided to cross the mighty Mississippi on the local ferries. We drove onto the Chalmette-lower Algiers Ferry which is minutes away from our campground. Because our truck was so big they parked us at the front instead of in the line of cars. The attendant joked that we were in first class.

Once on the Lower Algiers side we drove to Algiers Point where we parked the truck and boarded the Col. Frank X Armiger ferry which crossed the Mississippi again to Canal Street. Check out the Pelican perching on the red light at the Canal dock.

We searched for a place to have dinner and we came up with Felipe's Mexican Taquria where I had a Quesadilla and D'Arcy had a Chicken Burrito.

On the corner of St. Louis and Chartres a wedding party was walking in front of a drummer and a violinist so they decided to play the wedding march.

We had some time before we got back to the boat so we walked up Bourbon Street. People were up on balconies throwing Mardi Gras beads down but D'Arcy did not catch any this time. The guys didn't seem to be interested in his boobs.

Finally we walked back to the ferry for the trip back. It started to drizzle as we reached the terminal but otherwise it was a great day.
