Good Fences in St. Louis Cemetery #3…

On our recent stop in New Orleans, we didn’t have as much time as we would have liked and the weather was not the best, so Greg found us a tour company that would take us around town and would let us take the dog along with us.  We ended up with a very informative and comprehensive tour.  I would recommend New Orleans Native Tours (NewOrleansNativeTours.com) if you find yourself there.  Of course, the dog was allowed because it wasn't a full tour, but we really appreciated that.

As you can imagine, Olive thought she was hot stuff getting to go on a tour that is normally reserved for people.  She behaved so well, that we were proud of her.


One of our stops along the way was to St. Louis Cemetery #3.  Before we arrived in New Orleans, I was determined that we were going to visit one of the famous above-ground New Orleans cemeteries, so I was a happy camper.  Of course, I could have spent a lot more time wandering around that beautiful place, but beggars can’t be choosers and I was just glad to get an opportunity even a short one.

Here are a few fences I came across in the cemetery:

This is one place that grave sights are really fenced in. Your pup looks cute.

I find these cemeteries fascinating with their fancy vaults and fences and always think of the movie "Double Jeopardy" when I see photos of them. Olive looks like she enjoyed the tour too. :)

Who could say no to Ms. Olive? I can still remember seeing the above-ground cemeteries when I went to New Orleans during high school to march in the Mardi Gras. Quite an experience. Love the pictures.
