I have celebrated this happy birthday day by mainly giving lovely gifts to my taste buds and tummy.
Started our morning with breakfast at Stanley's on Jackson Square - Eggs Benedict with fried oysters. Beyond delicious - best birthday breakfast ever!
We then walked over to Cafe Du Monde and grabbed a table. The beignets and cafe au lait deserve all the hype, though we would recommend not sitting near the outer edges on a windy day!
Despite our best efforts, we definitely ended up wearing a good amount of powdered sugar!
For lunch we split some fantastic jambalaya and a roast beef po'boy at Johnny's. Well worth waiting in the line that stretched out the door!
And to go with the sandwich, a bag of Zapp's Voodoo chips. Very addicting, with a bit more zing than a typical BBQ flavor.
But also getting in plenty of walking, and even swimming in the hotel’s rooftop pool!
The view from the hotel's roof.
All is calm and quiet early on a Sunday morning!
The only way it could be better if all our friends and family could have been here to share the day with us! This traveling has really been very fun, but I am certainly missing everyone too!
