Alligator hunting

New Orleans is our new home for the week. We were happy to arrive to warmer temperatures in the 70’s. Unfortunately it didn’t last long because its now in the 30’s. Luckily we did get in a nice hike before the colder weather set in. We walked the Bayou Coquille Trail on a mission to see alligators…..

We were starting to think we wouldn’t see any but finally daddy spotted an alligator. He was right by the walking trail, what an awesome experience!

The weather is supposed to go back up to the 70’s by the weekend. We are looking forward to exploring more of Louisiana!
