Robyn’s away so I’m writing this time. Never done it before so we’ll see how it goes.
Oh, I almost forgot to tell you… My name is Sarge. And, By the way, today’s my birthday and I’m 11 years old. I picked out Dave and Robyn to live with when ….I’ve never seen that squirrel here before…when I was 4 months old. I like Dave but I like Robyn more. She listens to me when I tell her stuff. But, Dave takes me on nice long walks so I like him too.
Sometimes, I get to go to places with them, but not all of the time. This time they took me to that place with our own little rooms and a big yard to play in outside. Miss Theresa treats me very nice… There was this one dog there that peed in places I like to pee … They went to New Orleans.
From Pensacola, Florida it’s only about a three hour drive to New Orleans, but as long as we all lived here, none of us had made it over there yet. They said I can’t go to New Orleans. This trip was only for a day and a half but they said they enjoyed it and they walked a lot… and it was very hot.
The Blake Hotel in the commercial district is where they stayed. Since they were there for a vacation package presentation the hotel was paid for but the parking wasn’t. The parking for guests staying in the hotel is $30 per night so it costs them $60! They told me they decided not to buy the vacation package.
Since they were there only a short time, they didn’t do any of the tours or see much of the history. Maybe the next time. They took the trolley from the commercial district to the end of the line at Frenchman St. and explored that area a little. Instead of taking the trolley back to the hotel, the walk back gave them the opportunity to see a little more of the Frenchman street area, the French Quarter and walk down Bourbon street. Bourbon street was narrower, and dirtier, than expected. They also had a lot of street repair going on at the time.
Here’s some pictures and a little video they took.
This is from Cafe Beignet. The cafe was full of statues of famous musicians and there were some live musicians playing on the small stage in the center of the cafe. Of course, the beignets were wonderful!
Marie Laveau’s on Bourbon Street.

Robyn will be back soon, so I think I won’t be writing any more posts.
