Day 8 (Taking it easy in the Big Easy)

Today’s day off was great for all of us. We were finally been able to sleep in past 7 am and not worry about being somewhere. After breakfast, we took the opportunity to do a bit of exploring of the city. We went down to the French Quarter and checked out some of the historical sites. When we got there we first walked around Bourbon Street. From there, we checked out Jackson Square where a lot of musicians and artists set up for the day. I walked around the square to look for some art to bring back. Seth and Jackie went to the St. Louis Cathedral to see the unique stain glass windows of the cathedral.
Today served as a great way to rejuvenate. It was great to finally sit down and not be planning the next move. Seth got an opportunity reorganize, Jackie a chance to write some postcards and me to catch up on the blog. Tomorrow we’ll be ready to get going again, and finish this second half the trip strong.
