After a morning full of painting, the New Orleans crew took a ferry ride to further enjoy the beautiful day. I’d just like to say that it is 82 degrees here. Too bad it is snowing back in WI
We also stopped at a glass blowing shop that was featured on HGTV called Rosetree:
Krystin taking a break on the tree in the backyard:
We were up bright and early for orientation at the St. Bernard Project! Joining us were volunteers from Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Michigan, Vermont, and Ohio. We found out today’s project is painting and we can’t wait!
We wrote each of our names on the benches at St. Bernard Project!
After an eventful St. Patrick’s day, it’s bed time in New Orleans. We have to be out the door at 5:45am tomorrow for orientation at the St. Bernard Project office at 6:15. Because I’m super tired, here is a quick recap of our day after we ate lunch at Krystal Burger on Bourbon Street:
We saw break dancers called the Dragon Masters in the French Quarter! The picture below shows a guy right before he did a flip over those people!
Taylor and Ellie went to the Louisiana State Museum and learned all about Hurricane Katrina. It was cool and a great reminder of why we are on this trip. See picture below.
All the sightseeing made us hungry again. So we ate dinner at Huck Finn:
Finally, before heading back to the Annunciation Mission, we got to witness the St. Patrick’s Day parade. It was crazy and we got many beads and souvenirs!
Phew! What a day! We are all excited to start volunteering tomorrow! Goodnight and talk to you tomorrow! Sweet dreams from New Orleans!
The New Orleans group headed out early for breakfast, shopping and wandering around the streets. Bourbon Street is pretty neat!
Breakfast at Cafe de Monde. The coffee and beignets were delicious!
