2006 Port Arthur's Mardi Gras

Yesterday was the last day of Mardi Gras in Port Arthur. I attended yesterday's festivities. I also got to visit the Museum of the Gulf Coast in Port Arthur since it's inside the festival grounds. Again, I played photographer and enjoyed it.

Many thanks to my wonderful husband for the photography tips.
