Day 1-Friday May 8th

We left Orlando, Fl at 8:15 a.m., we decided to take a little stretching break at Battleship Park in Mobile, Alabama!!!Here C.J. is thinking "Man I just want to go in there and play"!!!!This is the USS Alabama battleship first used in the 1940's.
C.J.'s explaining all the technical things of the ship and the B-25 aircraft to Jesse!!!
I want to play with the tanks too!!!!
Here is the kind of tank,Pershing tank that my Dad would have been on when he was in the army in 1953-1955. He suffered some hearing loss due to his tank driving.
A B-52!!!!! Calamity Jane was her name!!!! This is a mighty fighting aircraft!!!
And huge!!!!
We continued our drive to New Orleans!!!!It was 650 miles from Orlando to New Orleans, It took us about 10 hours to get there!!!!
We had dinner here at the French Market Cafe. Up on the balcony overlooking Decatur Street below. We could hear the jazz bands playing below us!!!
C.J., Jesse, Jamie, Diane and Dad.We had to try a hurricane!!!
The kids wanted to have Alligator Tail as an appetizer, I tasted it and it was very chewy!!!Anything fried tastes like chicken, so mostly I tasted the breading, but it was chewy!!!!
A very New Orleans dinner, jambalaya and red beans and rice!!!!
Out on Bourbon Street, a little crazy to say the least!!!!
As I mentioned a little crazy!!! Here on Bourbon street you will see almost anything!!!
C.J. and Jesse, we really were there!!!!!
One of the most famous jazz clubs!!! Here are statutes of 3 very famous jazz musicians!!!
