Laissez Les Bons Temps Rouler!

Let the good times roll! It's Fat Tuesday at Sunshine Key, and the residents and long time visitors know a good time when they see one....this morning started with a pancake breakfast which is supposed to bring you good luck.....Next, a "Big Mamou" Polker Walk....Then, crown the Sunshine King and Queen for the parade later this afternoon.....

This afternoon was the Mardi Gras Parade...great floats, great costumes! The best one was the School of Fish float, starting with a boat named "The Happy Hooker".....The anglin' boat caught a LOT of fish, a whole school of them, to be a matter of fact!

A hogshead fish.....
A lionfish......
There were pirates! Friendly ones...he said he was Captain Morgan! yuck, yuck!
The Conch Queen was at her finest.......
And even a little devil of a dog......

Finally, at 6:00 PM, there was a Mardi Gras Ball and dinner dance at the clubhouse....We didn't take part in that....we waited to late to get tickets, the ball sold out!  Such a fun day.....We loved it!
