The next morning we rose, as early as possible, to make the most of the unusual fine sunny weather and check out New Orleans' waterfront. Heeding Laura's moms advice we stopped for a light breakfast of Beignets (a deep fried doughnut covered in a mountain of icing sugar) and some famous cafe au lait in the French Market. Then we meandered along the Mississippi levee taking in the warmth of the day and the view over the great expanse of water. There was a steamboat playing a song (see video). Then back to the hotel and au revoir to New Orleans.
