New Orleans Trip - Day Three

On our third day in New Orleans (see the first two days here and here), we woke up on Sunday and got ready for church. We went to Mass at the St. Louis Cathedral, which is just beautiful! 

The Cathedral is right on Jackson Square, so we walked around for a while after church to see everything on the square.

There were so many artists selling their work! 

We had brunch reservations for Muriel's on Jackson Square. "Sunday jazz brunch" is a thing in New Orleans, so we were excited to eat yummy food while being serenaded by jazz musicians! 

The food was delicious. As always, Jeff was adventurous (he ordered the "alligator hash") and I was more boring (an omelette with chicken andouille sausage), but we both really enjoyed our brunch! The music was delightful as well!

After brunch, we drove over toward the Tulane and Loyola campuses, which are in a beautiful part of town. It was fun to see the campuses, and there were so many gorgeous, mansion-sized, French-style houses around there! After that, our trip came to an end and we made the drive back to Houston.

Thanks for a wonderful three days, New Orleans!!
