After the engagement we went with few of the professors and students to the "The Original". I was told this was the birth place of the Margarita. A movie star asked the bar tender for a drink that is sweet and salty.
Of course during our drive we observed many of these, it seems like we do most of our traveling later in the day. The only draw back to that is that we had to keep the hotel to let them know we will be having a late check. One time I book a room with those value hotels, I only did that once. when we did get the place, no one was there to check us into our room.
But the best sunset had to be this one:
People In Sky
Once In A Lifetime - Talking Heads
Some song about sunset
The only song missing was David Bowie - Heroes
#heyjack as soon as you hit Alabama these duck fellows have merchandise all over the place. #heyjack the only thing I want is this cup for my real jack. You got that jack?
While we were ending our stay in TX. Wifey and I decided to go onto New Orleans since it was only a six hour drive. Who know when the next time we would be this close will be? Before we even left TX, we got our Bourbon to drink on Bourbon street. Driving into the city we drive right pass the Super Dome still lit up in purple. We finally made it, only 6 months later thou! Our hotel was right on Canal Street, it turned out to be a great location to explore from. We got settle, started to do laundry and had a few drinks so the exploring had to wait until the next day.
I am a bit surprise the operator do not give us much trouble about me being able to do this. Maybe they if Drunk people can do this, why can't a disable person be able to Try? After I was done my ride, we heard a band playing down by the River side. We met up with another cool couple that was from out of town. The four of us spent the afternoon and night listening, dancing, and drinking to the band watching the huge ships go by while we were enjoying life. I hate to report that we did not even see Bourbon Street, but that just gives us another reason to return to New Orleans!
So we pulled of the highway and follow the signs to a gator park, where they also do rides. We had a half hour before the next ride and started to look at the gator. Wifey was excited and scared at the time especially when we had to walk down the bridge that was fenced in on both sides and gator could swim under. I said this is like Indiana Jones, but nobody is going to cut the rope bridge. It a cool ride, the boat guide kept trying to go fast, but the water was too high. The boat guide also kept stopping to call gators over to the boat and feed them marshmallows. He also said, the last season of Gator Boys was shot at this park. It was a great way to end our trip and a better way to spend the gentleman's gift.
