I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July. We had a very nice time visiting with friends who were vacationing in New Orleans. We went down and had dinner with our friends at Muriels. Greg and I had eaten there once before. I remember being pretty impressed with my blackened tuna, but Greg didn’t remember it as much. So it was a bit of a surprise when we all ordered something different and all decided we had ordered the best thing on the menu. We ate entirely too much, drank too much, and then they all had dessert with out me. (Stupid migraines.) It was very very yummy!
Then we watched the fireworks on the Mississippi. The city has dueling barges, so we got to see in sinc, or almost in sinc exploding fireworks. It was cool, accept it only lasted 12 minutes. I think I would have preferred only one barge and a longer show. Twelve minutes hardly seemed worth it. Though we did get to visit with good friends, so it was all good…until we wanted to leave the parking garage! Yikes!
We were on the 6th floor and it didn’t look good, (backed up at least two more levels) so we went to a bar and sat around drinking bottled water. How cool are we? Hey Greg had already had his share of hurricanes for the evening and I am a non drinker these days. (Sucky stupid migraines.) Anyway, we people watched until midnight, finally braved the parking garage and made it home about 2am. The fireworks ended at 9:12 pm. So the verdict is in. It isn’t on the list of things to do next fourth of July. But back to Muriels we will go. Did I mention yum?
