Mardi Gras Krewe du Vieux 2014

Parade season has officially started.  Last night, Krewe du Vieux rolled down the streets of the Marigny and the French Quarter, New Orleans with its distinctive satirical themed floats, customs and throws.  This year’s theme was “Where the vile things are”  and proved once again that no one is save from a little ridicule.  Happy Mardi Gras season 2014!

Pike Place Starbucks

How can I go to Seattle and not visit the first Starbucks store at Pike Place?  I can now say that I have enjoyed a macchiato while photographing the beautiful wooden floors in this store.

Although my visit to Seattle was brief, I couldn’t return home without a visit to Pike Place.
