Sunday in New Orleans
What a lovely day. From homemade pancakes made in the Hands On New Orleans Bunkhouse kitchen to a cool breeze, the morning had the spirit of sharing and excitement. A free performance at the First St. United Methodist Church after church services set the tone for a wonderful week of performances. The strings were on fire, the trumpet and pianos cool, the voices crisp, the dancing soaring and the acting moving. All appreciated by a small but grateful audience.
After a windy lunch by the Mississippi River and some festive sightseeing in the French Quarter, we visited the house the team built in 2010. We were excited the completed house on Painters Street in enrobed in bright purple paint. Although the sun had set and it was dark by the time we got there, it was a lovely sight to see. We also made a evening visit to the Lower 9th Ward to see the progress accomplished by the Make It Right Foundation.
