Gangs all Here! @ Nannie & Bubba's in Louisiana - Jan 25-29, 2013
Jimmy and I pulled in their driveway in Watson, LA (outside Baton Rouge) on Friday afternoon. Weather here is a whole lot warmer than at our home in Nevada City... which is why we're snow birds! Fran, who lives across the street from us in Nevada City, sent us a picture of our place Sunday... with a blanket of snow all over. Hoy, glad we're not there! We always have a good time here at my sister and BiL's. (Laissez les bons temps rouler as they say in Louisiana.)
Grackles greeting the sunrise in Mustang Island TX the morning we left.
Jimmy, Nannie & Bubba. Sunday was a perfect day for a bike ride around University Lakes in Baton Rouge.
Lots call 'em tulip trees, but these beautiful trees are really Japanese magnolias -- already in bloom.
Seen on the bike ride -- pink flamingos: Mardi gras time!
Nannie and me!
When I told this Muscovy duck it was UGLY, the durn thing gave me the fish eye.
A flock of White Pelicans gathered near the shore. These two stood out. White Pelicans have the second largest average wingspan of any North American bird, second to the California Condor.
Louisiana State Capitol bldg. My sister used to work there. Used to is good!
Nannie playing with the geese... or geese messing around with Nannie!
Sunday nite dinner @ Carrabba's. Gang's all here - Judy, Jim, Shirley, me, Michelle, Nannie, Joe, Bubba, and Jimmy (taking care of business). Fun time!
Followed by a sky Full of Moon. Good nite!
