New Orleans City Park



"City Park is as magical and unique as the city of New Orleans.  The 1,300-acre outdoor oasis has enchanted New Orleanians since 1854, making it one of the nation's oldest urban parks.  Each year, millions of visitors stroll under the same historic oaks and picturesque moss canopies that served as the backdrop for dances, concerts and even gentlemanly duels or 'affaires d'honneur' for generations." www.neworleanscitypark.com

Of course, my writer-girl immediately said she'd like to write a story about it.  And it seemed as though the air itself was thick with stories.  I wouldn't hate spending a whole day under one of these great-grandmother trees with their arms reaching down like they want to pick you up. 

Magical indeed.
