Today Avery and I walked down by the Riverwalk to check out that area of town. It was only about 3 blocks away from our hotel, so it wasn't too bad.
This is the world trade center building right by the river:
The Aquarium (more on that to come):
Along the river is Woldenberg Park-it's a pretty small grassy area that has a few memorials set up. We were out and about pretty early so there weren't too many people there (and the ones that were looked kind of scary! Haha!). I took a few pics of the memorials though....Holocaust memorial:
I have no idea what this one is-it was on the other side of the park but it looks cool!
A bridge-no clue what the name is or where it goes!
We came upon the Steamboat Natchez:
And a nice fountain:
At the end of our walk, a nice looking Ferrari drove by so I had to snag a picture of it to show Gabe!
After our long walk, Avery had lunch and then napped. We hung out in the room a little bit, then met up with Gabe after his conference for dinner. Tonight we went to The Crazy Lobster, which was down by the riverwalk area we were at earlier. I decided to try Jumbalaya...yes it has shrimp in it and I don't do seafood at all....I wanted to try an authentic New Orleans dish while we were there so I picked out all of the shrimp! It was pretty good!
Avery enjoyed her dinner there as well (she loved the corn on the cobb!)-they had a band playing and she would clap after every song finished-it was so cute!
