Thanks to novels (like Michael Scott’s series The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel) and movies (like National Treasure), I have a bucket list of places in the US that I’d like to visit. Not to necessarily reenact the scenes at those specific location (although I’m not ruling that out), but to experience the view for myself. Making the list, in no particular order, are: San Francisco, CA, New Orleans, LA, Honolulu, HI, Seattle, WA, and Philadelphia, PA. (This is not the complete list.)
A few weeks ago, my sister called and said she and her hubby were taking a road trip to New Orleans.
I was floored.
And then I was jealous.
New Orleans, really? That city is packed with such a rich history and is swimming in legends and secrets. Not to mention, it’s on my list of places to visit. (Thanks to a book by Denise Alvarado.) My sister offered to hit some of the sites I really wanted to see and take pictures. (Her hubby is amazing with a camera.)
Here are some of the great photos the talented Mike Sayre took during their trip.
Below are pictures from the Saint Louis Cemetery No. 1. (This is one of the sites that Marie Laveau and her daughter are supposedly buried.)
Do you have a bucket list of places you’d like to visit? What tops your list?
