We woke up at 6 am to a band playing outside our window! I got up and looked out and was really surprised to see this:
We walked back to our hotel to get ready to go on our bayou tour and we were very surprised to see that the band playing had turned into a full fledged filming session. NCIS New Orleans was filming a scene right outside out balcony! We watched them film for a while and got to see Mark Harmon and Scott Bakula up close! It was pretty cool - not something that I thought we would see, for sure!!
After that we grabbed a little lunch - by this point I can barely think about more food!! - and we headed out for our bayou tour. It was fun - and we even saw a couple of alligators which isn't common for this time of year!
After we got back, we got changed and headed out to dinner at Luke - another of John Besh's restaurants. I had shrimp and jalapeno grits - delicious!!! On the way back to the hotel, we stopped by the bar that we got engaged in back in 2000 and had a celebratory shot. We didn't even get carded on the way into the bar - we are so totally old.
We had such a great time and we are so thankful for Siobhan! I had no worries about the kids and it was nice to know they were in such great hands!!
