|Amber at Farmer's Market|
The bicycle group started out with breakfast at the Coffee Call with beignets and hot New Orleans Cafe au Lait. We headed to the Farmer's Market on 5th and Main for the artisan breads and beet tops and honey.

It was a beautiful day for a ride, believe it or not we were in partial sun/shade the whole time. The levee tends to be very very hot because they do not allow trees to grow on the levee itself for fear that it would undermine the strength. And the strong wind from the last ride was not happening so we were able to ride a good bit down to the end of the new laid path.
I have always loved this church steeple against the blue sky. Someone should do a quilt like this surrounded by some pure white on white blocks tinged with the palest blue. Here is the whole shot, sacred and secular! That is the Chase Bank Building behind it.
On the way home, this familiar sight came into view. You know you are in Louisiana for sure when you see the air boat heading down the Interstate!
