Travel Photo of the Day (September 3)

The Mississippi River early in the morning.

While in New York City last week I met a delightful couple from New Orleans. They were worried about their friends and family back home since Hurricane Isaac was approaching their wonderful city. A few years ago I had the privilege of visiting New Orleans, which if you haven’t gone folks, I highly recommend it. It’s a beautiful, vibrant, and friendly city. Fortunately Isaac’s damage wasn’t as bad as Katrina’s damage. This isn’t to say that it was a cakewalk either. My heart goes out to all those who were affected.

    Great composition in this photo.
    Even a “small” storm can be bad news for a city with areas situated below sea level.

  2. I think we all have victims of Isaac in mind. Glad it wasn’t as bad as feared.

    I’d love to go to New Orleans one day

    • TBM says:

      I hope you do! And if you go, visit Anne Rice’s home in the garden district. In her novel, The Witching Hour, she used her home as the setting.

      • T.F.Walsh says:

        Oh, that would be a must.

      • TBM says:

        I really enjoyed seeing her house. One of the reasons I visited New Orleans was due to her descriptions of the Garden District and all of the old houses. And the cemeteries are a real treat to see. I think you’d find much inspiration for your novels. So many wonderful writers resided there.
