You know what I really enjoyed about New Orleans? Well, other than the most obvious … sunshine! I loved the street performers.
On one of our last days in the city, Brianna and I spent some time just sitting in the sun at the outdoor Cathedral square. It’s one of those places that’s just always alive with people.
And as this band played, bystanders enjoyed in their own ways. Folks walking by, slowed their pace and others took the opportunity to relax, finding a spot to sit and listen.
And then, there are those who took the time to fully enjoy the moment …
which was just the encouragement others needed to join in!
Later as we meandered down Bourbon Street, we enjoyed yet another lively street performance.
I love the sleepiness of my little town of Everson — quiet and remote — and yet I miss the unexpected. There is something quite enjoyable about street performers. Perhaps if I lived in a city such as New Orleans, street performances would become commonplace and quickly lose their appeal but I don’t live in a big city and that is certainly not the case. So to all the “unknown” performers with your amazing talents, who brightened my stay in New Orleans, I thank you!
