Fri New Orleans

We have had a morning of pampering. Doug went out to find a barber for a wet shave—apparently closing his eyes in case the barber was using a cut-throat razor! Mine was more infinitely more pleasurable, a manicure followed by a pedicure. My finger nails are always at their best at the end of a holiday. I don’t know how long this will last once household chores & gardening come into the equation again. 

After lunch we have packed our bags ready for the off tomorrow & our marathon trek home. Tonight, however, we have one last treat in store. We are going on a paddle steamer (the genuine article it seems) for a 2hr Jazz cruise along  the Mississippi. Along with the Jazz there will be a buffet table & drinks to sooth us along.
