But it was nice to see a beautiful sunrise as I sat and waited for my plane to begin boarding.
My first real view of the ship, as we were boarding at the Port of New Orleans.
I thought we would have a big Bon Voyage, like they use to have on The Love Boat, but it wasn't like that. We had a boat drill, to let us know where to go to jump on our life boats just in case some ol' Titanic mess jumped off. And we all stood on the decks, clutching our life jackets, waving at whoever would wave good-bye to us... Oh. Joy.
So I took pictures as we sailed down the Mississippi river towards the Gulf of Mexico.
Some folks taking the Natchez Ferry down the Mississippi were very happy to give us a decent Bon Voyage. They waved and screamed and waved as we went by.
( 65 day cruises start at about $15,000.00. Rolling all around the Carribean, South America, and Anartica. Who's going with me? Come on, Southern Black Gal! LOL)
I got a good shot of Jackson Cathedral in Jackson Square, even from the boat.
