During my walk through the zoo I was anticipating a visit with the sea lions. Well, much to my chagrin, their play area had been drained and they were nowhere to be seen. The best I could do was to listen to them hidden away. Anyway this is
the area near their habitat. There’s a fountain with spoked
paths nearby.

This cart belongs to the Roman Candy Man. He sells sticks of taffy: chocolate, strawberry and vanilla. He roams the Uptown streets of New Orleans in his cart pulled by a mule. Sometimes you can see his taffy pulling machine at work.
