You May Find Yourself Living in a Shotgun Shack






I've always loved the song "Once in a Lifetime" by the Talking Heads, and now I know what a shotgun shack is. A fair number of these exist at the edges of the French Quarter in New Orleans. It is worth a wander away from the hustle and bustle of Bourbon Street and Royal Street to enjoy these colorful houses. Some of them sustained damage during Hurricane Katrina and haven't been restored yet or are in the process of being restored.

My husband is headed to New Orleans in a few months. I'll have to tell him to check out these houses. They're fantastic!
