Day 210 - Sis
Whew! The heat was waiting for us as soon as we stepped outside. After going to breakfast, delicious, we headed out to other parts of the French Quarter. Since the heat index was 115% with the humidity feeling like it was 300 we figured our best bet was a ride on the river via the Natchez, a steam paddle wheel boat. The ride took us by the sites and sounds on shore which were interesting but it sure wasn't any cooler. This is still a bustling area of commerce with many ships loading or unloading at the docks. The large warning sign on this ship seemed a bit redundant as it's an oil tanker!
