Happy Mardi Gras
This afternoon Man and I took a break from doing paper work and such for the new ride and took the new ride for a ride over to the Intracoastal Waterway and soaked up some sun and grabbed a few beads during the Gulf Shores - Orange Beach Mardi Gras boat parade. Sony got photos! WAHHOO!
There are boats with beads and jesters:
There are boats with lots of shiny stuff:
There are boats with lots of flags!
Usually they just toss beads at you, these guys got really serious about being sure the beads reached the shore, air guns!
And, the hats were all fun and fab and full of feathers:
The pirate theme was well represented. By the way, what do they call a female pirate?
And, this is probably my favorite, more pirates, including a flag up top the mast:
Lisa: He might not be Johnny, and he has on sunglasses so we cannot see his eyes, but, I think he is a pretty cute pirate, don't you? He even has a cute little yellow duck!
* What a difference two years can make, first 2010, look at the beads and look at that winter coat, earmuffs and gloves!
And, today, giving Big Butt's Big Brother (still officially unnamed) a hug, just a few beads, but, a t-shirt.
I think I like the fewer beads and the warmer temps!
