The Oldest House in New Orleans

Photo by me.

I recently took a trip to New Orleans, which is actually quite an interesting and mysterious city. Because I love old things, I sought out the oldest house in New Orleans, and found it in a more out-of-the-way part of the city. Called the Spanish Custom House, and built in 1784, it looks like something straight out of Gone With the Wind or a Southern Gothic novel. There must be so much history that has taken place in a house as old as this.

Old Door

I saw this old door in New Orleans. It made me think about all the various ways the Pevensie children found themselves pulled into Narnia. I wonder if this could be a portal...

There's a chance of snow in the forecast, so... cue falling snow effect!
