Mardi Gras & More

Sorry, virtual vacationers, we've been too busy to blog.  Just know that we are having a wonderful time down here despite the weather being somewhat cooler than we'd like.

Yesterday was, of course, Mardi Gras, and we celebrated it by going to the Gulf Shores parade and then going to a nature center at a nearby park.  Of course we had King's Cake with dinner as well.

There were lots of floats


Even Jesus got into the act, tossing out moon cakes

 There were plenty of beads!!


Sorting through the loot at the end of the parade is always fun!

Just a "few" of the beads we collected
We made some new friends at the nature center




Today we went mini-golfing and then did some antiquing and shopping in Foley.




 Sad to say, we only have two days left.
