New Orleans Day 6 ~ RT Convention Wrap-Up by Brandilyn

RT_banner_2014

Sunday was my last day in NOLA.  Thanks to New Orleans being a very popular weekend getaway location from Houston, the earliest flight out I could get was 8:45pm.  Now, I know you are thinking “oh, you could have just gone on standby on an earlier flight… um no.  They are ALL very full flights and I didn’t want to be stuck in the (very boring) New Orleans airport all day.

It was mostly a day of hanging out and saying goodbye to friends new and old.  Lots of pictures and hugs.  I had a very leisurely breakfast in the hotel with a few people, and then Becky and I headed to the New Orleans Zoo.   It was a beautiful day for the trip.

It was beautifully landscaped, but overall left me underwhelmed.  We ended up touring much of it on the train and calling it good.

We took the cable car (with a bus transfer and cable car transfer thanks to construction on the cable car lines, and free shuttle to the zoo) down there and the bus back to the French Quarter.

I am really sad that I left my good camera at home this trip, but I had an enjoyable time.  We went back to the hotel and talked with some new friends for a few hours, until it was time to head to the aforementioned BORING airport.  At least the security line was miniscule.

I was very happy to see my husband had been to the grocery store in my absence and had my favorite guilty pleasure waiting for me this morning (well it was there last night, but I just crashed when I got home).  Becky will appreciate this, because I was totally jonesing for Caffeine Free Dr Pepper last night at the airport.

I have LOTS of swag and some free books to giveaway in the coming days/weeks/months/etc.  I need to go through it all and see what I have between RainbowCon and RT.  I will definitely be doing the Prism Swag/Amazon Giftcard/Con swag giveaway in the next couple of days, but there will be at least one more giveaway, as well.

Catch up with the rest of my trip: Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4, and Day 5

Much Love!

Giveaway!
