Before the parades…

Just some snapshots I took on the way back from the post office today – first parades are tonight!  I love the build up to the parades, the police officers gathering at each block, the empty floats awaiting riders (these are not very fancy floats in the pics), the cotton candy and fuzzy hat and sword vendors, the bands warming up, the horses – it’s all so festive!  We’re not even going to tonight’s parades, but all the preparations make me smile.  Plus there’s a new double-decker hop on, hop off tour bus service that I saw for the first time today – how fun!IMG_2454 IMG_2453 IMG_2450 IMG_2448 IMG_2441

    Josh here from the BlinkPack blog. I was just in New Orleans for 12 hours and had a GREAT time. I wish I could have spent longer, but I’m thankful that I could visit at all. What a fantastic city. I wish you all the best with your blogging. Cheers!
