Coast Guard on the job. Keep it up!
I'm kinda fascinated by modern lifeboats.
Cruise ship loading.
Did you know that you can Google a ship's name and instantly know all about it? I was pointing to vessels we were passing and telling people how long they'd been docked, what they were carrying, tonnage, etc.
If you're ever in New Orleans I recommend taking The Natchez.
We knew we wanted to take the boat but it came together last-minute so I had the "wrong" camera with me, but these pics turned out fine. Might be the first time I've blogged color photos from the F828 instead of the usual infrared black & whites.
On the subject of Tasty Treats: A bunch of us hit a scuzzy little dump just off Bourbon St. for Po' Boys. Mine was fried chicken, while the others went with catfish and shrimp.
It's hard to make a bad chicken sandwich--I don't even mind McDonald's--so it's not like my standards are all that high...
But the one I ate tonight was the best I've ever had by far.
And it was so big I really wanted to save half for later, but couldn't bring myself to stop eating until it was gone.
The first bite got stuck somehow, and it took a few minutes before I was able to get it to go down. Instead of worrying about almost choking to death I just got mad about having to wait on that second bite.
Is that a good review, or what?
