Welcome to my submission for Mosaic Monday, hosted by my friend Mary at Little Red House. I returned yesterday from a week’s vacation where we visited friends in Biloxi, MS. We all took a day trip to New Orleans, a city I’d never seen.
It was fabulous, although the weather was incredibly hot and steamy. We strolled the French Quarter and had brunch at The Courtyard of the Two Sisters, who you can see as statues in the center of this mosaic.
After we ate, we walked a little more and then drove over to Cafe Du Monde for beignets and iced coffee. Yum.
Stop back later because I have a new drink to share with you. It’s perfect for summertime by the pool. Or anywhere, really.
Stop by my photo blog where I have one of the photos above enlarged. You may also click on this mosaic to go to my Flickr page, then click on "all sizes".
Until tomorrow, my friends . . .
beautiful shots - I really must get back to NOLA
Great captures! I have never been either. Some day. ;)
Wow, Kate, that looks like such a fun place to visit. !I'm so glad you are back, and posting again. Thanks so much for joining the fun at Mosaic Monday. :)
What a great place! Love your photos!
Such an interesting city! I've never been there or anywhere in the South yet...
Have a great week!
oh kate...what fab shots from no...each is special.
have a wonderful evening.
It looks like many of us were traveling this week. I'd LOVE to visit New Orleans someday. Your vision of it makes me ache to even more. Wonderful!
As soon as you said New Orleans I knew you'd have gorgeous images. You didn't disappoint!
what a gorgeous combination of photographs. It looks like a wonderful place to visit.
How much fun! I love New Orleans...one of my favorite vacation spots! Mmmm...I can almost taste the beignets and that coffee with chicoree! The Big
Easy really is a state of mind, isn't it?? Happy MM...Debbie
It looks and sounds delicious. Looking forward to reading about those drinks.
Oh lovely... you know it's been (ahem) 16 years since I was travelling in the US and saw New Orleans ... the last city on our trip through the states and I loved it. Was devestated at the terrible destruction there with the hurricane - seemed like everything we saw had been destroyed. But your shots show much of the things I enjoyed - it really is a special place!
What a fun mosaic. I've been to N'awlins, too, but it was so very long ago it made your photographs especially fun to view. Thank you! ~Arleen
What a wonderful trip you had! I am just scrolling through some of your posts, and I love the photo of you and the mermaid. You seem to be having a heart-to-heart chat. :-)
I would love to visit that part of your country.
Never been to N.O. but I heard about their weather. You did a wonderful collection of photos that make me want to go there! Have a great week!
I've never been to NO either so enjoyed the view through your lens! Great mosaic!
now I really know I have to visit the states one year. These are delightful!
Cold and wet in Orange today....brrrr. Dogs barking fit to bust outside. Must go and drag them in.
What a beautiful mosaic.Looks like a great place.
How's NO looking these days? I haven't been since the storm. I'm afraid to. Years of memories ...
Wonderful. I feel like I've been there now!

My daughter visited New Orleans this spring. it was hot then so I can just imagine how steamy it would be now. No wonder you're thinking up a new drink :) Happy MM!
We are planning to get there some time - love these shots that make me want to go even more. In February though, I think.
Wonderful way to showcase your N'awlins memories!
Lovely mosaic! :O)
Beautiful.. Great Shots!
George is darling!
Ah N'awlins, one of my all time fav places .. last time we had brunch at the Court of the Two Sisters ... lovely place but the food isnt as wonderful as it is at other Brennan owned N'awlins eateries ... glad you had such a good time.
Love the fun, relaxed pose along with the sun bather! Wonderful photos of New Orleans.
The header for your blog is lovely.
Sorry, I don't go willingly to places where it's hot and humid. It does look like you had a wonderful time.
Oh...I love New Orleans!!! Your photos are gorgeous and make a beautiful mosaic!!!
I have always wanted to go here! What fun photos! Have a fantastic week!
Oh my goodness! I almost did a mosaic on New Orleans too this week! Instead I decided on Mississippi. ;) I love, love, love your photos! Such a neat city. :)
Can't wait to hear all about your vacation!
Hi Kate....Oh good old Cafe DuMonde...I always have to laugh when I hear that name...We were in N.O. years ago when one night the Boss stepped out to walk around and bring us back a snack...We were staying at an old hotel right in the French Quarter....Okay, it was a dive....Anyhoo, he comes back a short time later with a big grin on his face...a bottle of milk and a bag....when I asked what was in the bag he proudly announces...." I brought you guys back a Beignet Mix"...I think it's a mixture of all different kinds"...we still laugh about that. He actually brought us a box of mix....to be made at home....Only a man!!
Gorgeous, romantic pics...
Never been there and can't wait to make the trip someday....soon! Lovely mosaic!
Missed you! Those New Orleans photos are great. Did you know that SuperGuy used to have a farm in Picayune, MS? We used to go to Biloxi to go out deep sea fishing with the boys!
That lower left photo in the Mosaic? Is that the building across from Cafe DuMonde? My dh's aunt and uncle used to live in there!
