89 Babies Club
May 2001 in New Orleans



A nice Saturday afternoon at the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas. Pictures to come... This was followed by dinner in the French Quarter.


The day started with a river cruise to the New Orleans Audubon Zoological Gardens. Most of the day was spent at the zoo.

Standing in line for the board ride was just loads of fun. A quick group picture before the Elephant show.
Just sitting around at the zoo.

After a short swim at the hotel, we boarded the Creole Queen for a two hour dinner cruise up and down the Mississippi River.

The line continued to grow and we didn't think we would make it on the boat. The biggest paddleboat at this dock!
(the only one)
The kid's table.....
The adult's table... The adult's are too big to get into one picture.

On the top deck after dinner!


Late to bed and early to rise, makes for a great swamp Airboat ride!

An early morning airboat ride through the Louisiana swamps does the trick. The biggest Airboat I've ever seen. It had two fans in the rear, over 450 horsepower engines...
Alligator hunting (with our eyes). Look in the center of the picture. Cypress trees with Spanish Moss
What a beautiful sight!

Lunch was at the "Court of Two Sisters". This was a buffet lunch that cannot be beat.

This was the end of the 2001 89 Babies Club adventure in New Orleans. Most went their separate ways. Some stayed in the French Quarter to shop, while others went back to the Riverwalk Center to shop. Most everyone was on the road by sundown.

What's next year's adventure...
