Alligators use their greenish grey coloring to hide in the swamp waters and vegetation from their prey. They've been observed as using tools, like a stick or vegetation, to appear more like logs or grass to unsuspecting birds, hogs, or nutria rats. Click the link in our bio to learn more!

I’ve been quiet here, but active on my Facebook page. I spent 10 days in Western Europe, having left 2 weeks ago today & returning this past Tuesday. I toured Belgium & Luxembourg, following the Battle of the Bulge for the @wwiimuseum for a week, then took the train to spend 3 nights in Amsterdam on my own. I had the most incredible time.
Another sweet Saturday at we celebrate the nuptials of Marie & Pech! From Elektra Glitter Bar, to the Cigar Factory rolling cigars, their guests are sure to be in for a treat!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Beautiful example of Creole architecture on Royal Street built about 1833 by Joseph Peralta for Dr. Paul La Croix. “In 1825, unlike the rest of the French Quarter . . . , most of Royal Street was already paved with discarded ships' ballast -- everything outside the French Quarter was a quagmire green with weeds, rushes and palmetto. By the 1840s, Royal Street was confirmed as the main shopping and business locale, renowned for its banking institutions, hotels, cafés, shops and elegant residences, where many of the leading families lived. The street's architecture today is practically the same as it was then -- a synthesis of Spanish, French and American. The charming irregularity of the old buildings, the balconies hung with lacy iron, the stately doorways and archways barely hiding patios and courtyards festooned with camellias, magnolias, heliotrope and jasmine all confirm the city's historical continuum.” (Antippas, Andy,_ A Guide to the Historic French Quarter_, Charleston, SC, The History Press, 2013.) #neworleans#architecture#frenchquarter
Despite what we've repeatedly been told, these cast iron poles were not used in the days of yore to tie up horses. They are simply decorative curbside barriers that prevent motorists from parking on lawns and sidewalks that did not appear in New Orleans until the 1960s. I did once see a 3 foot alligator tied to one, but that was in the French Quarter where anything goes.
Meet my new little lady! I call her Penny Pentax (nerd alert) I have always been draw to film photography but fear stood in my way. Several years ago when I lived in Los Angeles I took a dark room class and my teacher was this little old French man. His accent was so strong I could barely understand him but I loved it. I’m looking forward to my love affair with film for once and for all 💕#pentax645n
We have a number of awesome full-body services, but nothing is quite as good, in our humble opinion, as The Windsor.
This all-inclusive, luxurious body treatment begins by stimulating circulation with a dry body brush (and you know how much we love dry brushing), which is followed by an 80-minute aromatherapy massage infused with nourishing and immune-boosting coconut oil. The treatment ends with our soothing head-in-hands treatment. 💆🏽
Learn more about our full body services, and book your next treatment today. Link in bio.
“This tour was great!!!! Captain Jason was - knowledgeable and funny. We had a great time, from seeing alligators and turtles in the water to actually holding a little baby gator! Definitely recommend this place. We went with 2 kids, ages 14 and 3 and they both enjoyed it a lot, especially interacting with the baby gator.” - Paulina #realreview | 📷: Tynisha Johnson Bradley
