New Orleans on my mind

It is H-O-T down here, with no relief in sight. One place that I wouldn't mind being during a heat wave like this is in New Orleans. It is just so pretty, and if you're going to brave the heat, you might as well have something nice to look at! Plus, the drinks are nice and cold.
These are some of the images that come to mind when I think of it...

Ancient trees covered in Spanish moss...



The architecture...







Gas lanterns...


Courtyards...




The mix of the old and decrepit with the glamorous and new...


The huge windows that often open up to a porch...


And the tall ceilings with gorgeous chandeliers...



Where do you want to be today?

I'll join you in NOLA. I haven't been there in years and it's probably warmer there than here. First day of summer and it's 62 in Seattle!

i can assure you the last place i want to be right now is that city. gorgeous though it is....i can assure you the heat there right now is unbearable. ungodly even.
even it's even close to the weather here...you can't even be outside. and they are further south!!!

I heard that NOLA is not that far away from Dallas- a long drive...but doable. Its definitely a trip I want to take in the future, especially after looking at your pictures.

Oh New Orleans looks fabulous, your last post about it made me want to go there and now I really really want to go there. Something to add to my list :)

New Orleans is on my list of places to visit and your gorgeous collection of photos reinforced my desire to pack up and give them a visit.

As for where I want to be right now..at the lake.
