a visit to a cemetery a few blocks from the french quarter.
we also checked out city park with its huge twisted oaks.
|view of north new orleans (lake pontchartrain)|
|landing in dallas - notice the heart island in the lake!|
|oklahoma - notice the smoke in the distance!|
while it was 93 in new orleans it was 113 in oklahoma.
yes, it's hot everywhere. it's humid/hot in louisiana -
but it's broiling hot here. the body is not made for triple digit heat.
we received a letter from the mayor and fire chief of medicine park
admonishing residents to have an evacuation kit ready
in case another fire evacuation was necessary for the town.
last year, a fire raged through medicine park - our house
was just on the verge of being built...
the letter said we were in extreme fire hazard conditions now.
so, greg and i started a list of items that we would like to grab and throw
in our cars, if time permitted. we'd like to take as much artwork as
possible. :) i have journals that are very dear to me. lots of little travel
journals,,, precious little keepsakes.
a few pages from the newest travel journal.
in my next post, i'd like share all about the
audubon butterfly garden and insectarium -
that was one of the hilights of the trip for me. :)
a good week to all!!
