601-River Time – New Orleans, LA

Ended up in New Orleans for a couple of days and had to get a little river time. I went to my bench in Audubon Park on the Mississippi River. This is where I went for many years when I needed to chill. I could sit on this bench and the huge ocean-going ships would sometimes some as close as 50 yards to the shore steaming up river. This was a good day with several ships at once.
