Pensacola Beach Mardi Gras Parade 2009

The Mardi Gras Parade on Pensacola Beach was just one of many parades in the area over the last few weeks, but in my opinion, the beach parade is the best one! Yesterday, the sun came out just before the parade, which made for much better pictures!

These kids were waiting patiently next to me for almost an hour!

Here’s the first music of the day! McGuire’s Bagpipe Band!

And here come the beads!

The Krewe of Moonlight Madness with their Wizard of Oz themed float:

The lovely ladies of Mardi Gras:

Look at all of those beads. I was trying to find more information about this float. Does anyone know which Krewe or group this was?

The “Hip Huggers”

These ladies were sure having a good time tossing beads:

The crowds were loving it:

Here’s the Krewe of Lower Alabama, and apparently Super Mario is their mascot!

Here’s the Krewe of de Feet:

Lots of pink going on here:

“Irish” I would have been on this bus:

The Krewe of Warriors Stray Cats:

Elvis lives!

Krewe of Seville – I like the lamp posts!

Check out this festive bike!

Krewe Karrus Navalis:

I think their arms were getting tired. Good thing we’re nearing the end of the road!

These pirates were one of the last floats in the parade this year:

I’m just glad I live on the island and, once again, didn’t have to deal with the traffic leaving the island after the parade. Check out the line of cars! Repeat visitors know not to plan on being off the island for a few hours after an event like this. I’m already looking forward to next year’s Parade!


Early Riser

I got up early today, so I ran out to get a few shots of the sunrise. It looks like another Red Flag day on Pensacola Beach! Enjoy your day!

Each new day is a blank page in the diary of your life. The secret of success is in turning that diary into the best story you possibly can.

Today sure was a great day for February!

A perfect day for a walk on the beach…

…or a bike ride down Via De Luna…

…But swimming? Today? Yes indeed:
