Day 27: New Orleans

After a very busy night Dave and I decided to sleep in and take it easy today. After waking up late we decided to take a trip to the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas. When we arrived, we were just in time for the feeding of the sea otters. The otters were very intelligent playing with toys and doing other tricks in order to be fed. At the end, the trainers gave the otters blocks of ice with food inside them; we got to watch the otters smashing the ice against the windows and rocks in order to get to their lunch!

Afterwards we got to see a varitety of tropical fish, sea creatures and birds as well:

Tomorrow we will be up early as we have the longest drive of our trip - 6 hours without breaks northwards through Jackson, Mississippi and into Memphis, Tennessee.

Stay tuned!
