Today we headed to the NOLA Botanical Garden's in CityPark, which is the 5th largest park in the US. Not only was it a park/gardens, but there were a few carnival rides, as well as the 2nd oldest Carousel in the US. It was really cool, and all decorated for the holiday which was fun. We weeded, planted, hauled, etc. and had a relaxing last day of work. After wards we got a private tour of the grounds and got to hear about all the plants and animals that inhabit the park.
For Friday night our Fearless Leader of the CalPolyCommunity CENTER, Joy Harkins, met us in NOLA for a group dinner out. She agreed to visit and take us out at the end of the trip; and it was great to meet up with her in the end! We all went to Mulate's, a family style place with live Cajun Music every night and local faves such as frog legs and grilled gator, which we all experimented with. What a fun way to end a great trip!
