Carnival Shipwreck Float

I’ve been enjoying the sights, sounds, and throws of a New Orleans Mardi Gras for over a week. Fat Tuesday looms. I’ve seen pirates throwing spears, ships pulled by tractors and beads by the ton. But still no shipwreck! I’ve got another five or six parades to go, so I’m holding out. Thankfully, I found this fantastic shipwreck float from across the pond. I’m hoping the New Orleans folks will pick up on the idea next year.

    My daughter Jill is in the midst of Mardi Gras parades, balls and celebrations. I’ll put in a good word for a shipwreck float … and we’ll see what happens.
    Enjoy. Mardi Gras is something else, to be sure.
