The parade

We are enjoying our stay at this little B&B nestled in a tree covered lot and only seconds to the beach. It has been wonderful.

The weather is gorgeous but it has been a tad too cold to fully enjoy the outdoors, though the sun is shining the wind is chilly. Not that we’ve had much time for slowing down. Marian’s honey do list for her B&B keeps getting longer, and she also told her friend Karen about Bernie and now Karen has some work for Bernie too.

So far Bernie has re-screened the front porch, dug a draining system, painted a hanging bench, and replaced all the electrical outlets and switches in the main house. Bernie loves honey do lists.

Mar has done the laundry and had a couple of baking and cooking marathons. She baked cupcakes, muffins, cookies, and cornbread, that we will freeze to eat later. She also has prepared several meals and packaged them, ready to eat on the road.

We did take some time last night to go see the local Mardi Gras parade, our first parade. It was a small parade, probably a dozen floats or so, but the crowd was loud and wild. There were tons of beads all over the place. People of all ages were heavily adorned with beads by the time the parade was over. Everyone had a good time and we did too.
