Yesterday I took a swamp boat tour and got to see some American alligators in their natural habitat!
Now, I have loved crocodilians ever since I was a Zoo Teen volunteer at the Oregon Zoo, so a highlight for me was getting to hold this little cutie (I was assured the tape on his snout doesn’t hurt him):
That evening I saw some jazz on Bourbon Street.
Then earlier today during a conference break I took a streetcar out to the Garden District and walked through the lovely neighborhood.
I ended up in Lafayette Cemetery No. 1.
I finished up the day with a beignet.
Tomorrow I’ll be very busy with conference happenings. That’s it for now!
