After a late night, we decided to hang around the trailer for a good part of the morning. Around noon we head to Jackson Square and the French Market area which we had not visited yet. The French Market was crowded. Using the Cafe Du Monde, a market landmark, as a gauge, I would say the crowds are still not as large as they were years ago. They are certainly higher than what we saw in 2006. This was a short walk through the market because we have another busy evening in front of us.

The main reason we came to New Orleans is to attend the wedding of our nephew Adam Hess to Erin McMenamin. The wedding took place in the courtyard of the St. Louis Hotel in the French Quarter. The venue, the interior courtyard, was a beautiful place for a wedding with trees, flowers and a central fountain. The same things that made this venue beautiful also made it difficult to photograph because there was always something in the way. It was a nice evening all around. We wish Erin and Adam a life full of happiness.
