Our stopping points were Austin, Houston, Galveston, New Orleans, Raleigh, and Asheville.
I am amazed at how many beautiful places we have in our own country. Driving through the swamps of Louisiana; Camping in the wild hills in Austin; Watching the sun rise in Galveston; Seeing the fog floating in the valleys of the Blue Ridge Mountains... We made some wonderful memories, and soaked up some spectacular views.
I wanted to share some of the different architectural styles that we saw.
We saw a lot of stilt houses driving along the gulf coast, here is one in Galveston:
We also saw some of the most adorable little houses throughout all the different neighborhoods in New Orleans. Here is the photo story of New Orleans architecture (as I saw it):
|A row of colorful homes.|
|Love the little green and white detailed supports here.|
|I love the coordination of colors and details here.|
|Home turned cafe with gorgeous stained glass windows.|
|There was a lot of great iron-work, such as this balcony detail.|
|Lots of brick structures.|
|I love how the facade of this house is so grand that it is taller than the house itself.|
|They had a ton of pink houses too!|
What a cute little town. P & I even decided to buy our first house there!
|This is a ceramic wall hanging of a New Orlean's Shotgun Style house.|
Are you a fan of architecture? Do you like to check out all the different styles of houses in your neck of the woods or along your travels? I would love to see which architectural styles you admire!
