A Little Sailing.... New Orleans Style...

We took 5 days and flew to New Orleans Louisiana for our anniversary.  There were many high points to this short trip, most included food!  From great restaurants to Cajun Cooking School, it was a great week.  One highlight was an afternoon on a rented Benateau 7.5 meter daysailer from Murray Yacht Sales ...   It was REALLY nice to get a little sailing in!

 The other vacation event that involved a boat was a swamp tour provided by The Louisiana Tour Company.  What a blast! Our guide was knowledgeable, engaging, and seemed really happy to be there...

 The tour even included a little "hands on" with a 6 foot alligator! (okay, maybe a little smaller but the camera angle doesn't do the experience justice....)

And who knew that the owner took some time to show me how they maintain their exhaust systems...  Some great ideas I will use on our genset exhaust.
