Mardi Gras Day Festivities…

We had a prime viewing spot on Bourbon Street to watch the crazies walk by..

We had a fantastic Mardi Gras this year.  For the past three years, we have missed Mardi Gras in New Orleans as we were sailing the blue waters of the Caribbean.  We wouldn’t trade that experience, but it was wonderful to be back home in New Orleans for Mardi Gras again.  And boy did we do it right- we marched in two parades, saw the Super-krewes of Bacchus and Orpheus right from our living room window, and costumed in the French Quarter on Mardi Gras day.  After all of that fun, we both caught the typical “Mardi Gras head-colds” and are in much need of some R&R time to regroup and get ready for our next adventure..
