Apologies for the lack of updating lately--we got to Louisiana on Tuesday night and are camping at Fountainbleu State Park, across the causeway from New Orleans--about 45 minutes into the city via the Causeway (yeah, that massively long bridge that runs over Lake Ponchartrain). We camped at FB last time we came through NOLA and it's great--very friendly people and lots of space and huge trees. Tomorrow night we'll move to the ritzy, swanky French Quarter RV park which sits right in the heart of the French Quarter of New Orleans (I am already slightly panicked about manuvering the Airstream into the lot, but I'll leave that up to Ian). We didn't really want to move, but being 45 minutes across a bridge is a bit tricky when photographing weddings on the other side, so it's off to the RV park we go. Monday morning, after our Pop Up on Sunday night, we'll get up bright and early and leave toward Phoenix--I'm pushing for a 6am departure, we'll see if that happens.
Weather has been great and we've been enjoying the Big Easy (do people say that? I just did and I feel sort of ridiculous, ah well). The French Quarter reminds us both a lot of Vietnam, specifically the town of Hoi Ann where we spent about a week. We've been talking about making our way back to Southeast Asia sometime in the next year and this city is definitely making us want to do that sooner than later. Super excited to have Amy, our stylist and Pop Up artist extrodinairre here too--she flew in on Wednesday night and we spent the day yesterday getting all the supplies she'll need to craft and concoct the perfect Pop Up. I can safely put all that work into her hands and know whatever she creates will be amazing. Dogs are just fine, Ruth Ann fits right in in the South and Tasha is limping less and less each day.
Please keep your collective fingers crossed for good weather on Sunday--it's calling for rain now and while our couple claims to not be worried about it, I will admit that I am a bit concerned. Ah well, go with the flow, I suppose.
