Mardi Gras was pretty low key for me. I didn't do the wildness of Bourbon Street or all the madness of the parades in the metro area. Instead, I went to one of my favorite places.....my friend's porch. The day was just picture perfect! Blue skies, temps in the 60s with a light breeze. We just sat out there chit chatting, reading and drinking, of course :)
Now I left at a very reasonable hour about 3 pm or so. You would think I'm a greenhorn when it comes to Mardi Gras because I sure as heck didn't time that right at all! Traffic was almost a dead stop and barely moved! So, I had time to snap a couple of pictures. Now these are pics you can only see in the Crescent City.....
