The Girls…

Just home from a girls’ weekend in Crescent City, Mardi Gras beads remain in the trees, dangling like lazily sunning snakes. We girls shared good, good eats, a patio Hurricane then a couple of two-steps at the Rock-n-Bowl, a breezy open-window ride on the olé trolley car down St. Charles to counter service at The Camellia Grill, and so much more. It was indeed a great time with The Girls.

Wish they all could be California Girls...

Sarah’s sister in California has hens, and it’s her birthday. Like most party girls, hers love to have their picture taken. Besides, Gadora read recently there’s been a resurgence of Urban Coops (and she knows the joys of the birds on her parent’s Funny Farm)! It’s great to see the girls so happy.

Egg-straodinaire time at The Camellia Grill
Egg-straodinaire time at The Camellia Grill

Back to The Camellia Grill. Eggs piled sky-high in the rear of the kitchen at the best lil diner I’ve ever waited 30+ minutes to get into. Once seated side-by-side and stretched along the counter, we  girls ordered our egg sandwiches and milkshake chasers with a front row view of our meals coming together. The diner and Riverbend-institution closed after Katrina but now serves birthday wishes and greasy smiles to locals and tourists alike.

This weekend was a Big Easy, indeed.
