Thursday, July 15 – Visiting, eating, gaining weight…seems to be our daily routine. Every day one of us has either an appointment, lunch date (Marsha does this.), breakfast outing (This is Paul’s favorite.), visiting a friend at home, and we manage to see Marsha’s dad for a while each day. We can’t believe it has almost been three weeks since we arrived in Canton. It has been great to see our family and friends. This past week we saw our friends, Cindy and George Woods, and Joyce and Howard Kirk. Paul went to breakfast with 8 guys he taught with. Marsha went to Leigh Ann’s house and then to Jackson High School…where we both retired from…to see Keith, Carolyn, Dave and Shawn.
Since we are doing a ton of visiting and not any site seeing, we thought we would share some pictures of New Orleans and the Garden District. We didn’t have time to post all the beautiful houses we saw. We thought this would be a great time to share this wonderful section of New Orleans with you.
The author Anne Rice lives here.
This was the home of Jefferson Davis, first and only president of the Confederate States of America. He died in 1889.
Beautiful side balcony of the Davis’ home
Women’s Opera Guild House
Colonel Short’s Villa. That is Paul reading about the cast-iron fence, in cornstalk pattern.
This house was once owned by author Anne Rice. Once an active Catholic Chapel, the building is known as Our Mother of Perpetual Help Chapel.
These are just some examples of the beautiful historic homes.
Railings around the houses.
Lots more pictures here.
Thanks for stopping by. See y’all real soon.
