2011 Project 365 - MyLeroyPhotography

Paul and Cynthia among the tombs listening to the tour guide. Yeah, Paul's like me--he always has that camera to his face.

As we do every November, we spent the second weekend in New Orleans with our friends celebrating Dave's birthday (56) and our anniversary (31). Today we went to the Fall Festival at Destrehan Plantation and then we found the St. Louis Cemetery #1 where Marie Laveau is buried. A lot of walking tours end up here, so we kind of drifted back behind the tombstones and listened to the tour guides tell stories of those buried in the cemetery. (I know, we probably should have paid for the tour, but sometimes they were just too loud so we had to listen.) We even saw the pyramid-shaped tomb where Nicolas Cage will be buried.
