before meeting up with the rest of the lane family, my aunt, uncle and i added a little road trip to the front end of the trip as we headed to the gulf breeze. we spent less than 24 hours in the infamous city new orleans and soaked in all the sights, smells, and yummy foods that the city has to hold.
we stayed at this oh-so-charming hotel (hotel provincial) in the french quarter, where i snapped the pictures above.
upon our arrival, we headed straight into the hotel 'ice house bar' and sipped on ice cold and delicious cocktails. my aunt got a made-to-order bloody mary, and i got a pimm's cup just the way i like em.. without cucumbers!
it was a great hotel to stay at for the night we were there... tucked back off the street, quiet, cozy and within walking distance for what we had planned to see during our stay!
