What a great stay! Got in about 4 PM on Sunday, 6/11/17, and the Guv'nor, Kevin, had a cold beer chilling for us. He then escorted us down the the Crown and Anchor pub on the corner for a couple and then joined us for dinner at The Old Point Cafe, (the food was excellent!). Of course it was helpful that the owner of the B & B, Kevin, was from my old manor, Canning Town, in London, England. We had a great night.
The location of the B &B in Algiers Point, is just a 5-minute walk from the ferry, which is a $2 and 10-minute ride across the river and immediate access to The Riverwalk, French Market and 15-minute walk to the WWII Museum, (which is a must-see).
We are very much looking to another visit in September of this year, as we head back to Austin, Texas from a Florida vacation.
PS I even got to take Boudin "The Wonder Dog" for a late night walk!
