Burlington Mardi Gras 2011

With winter hopefully ending soon, one of the most anticipated activities in this cold and often gloomy North East city is the annual Mardi Gras parade. It may be a few (or more) notches down on the craziness scale compared to the original Mardi Gras down south, but it is far more family friendly. It’s great to see the colorful display of characters in the parade, not to mention the fun gathering of the Vermont populace in a party mode.

At 45 degrees F, it is definitely a little more bearable to hang out to watch the entire parade this year. Of course I’ll be happy to have weather beyond freezing point nowadays.

Boston After the Storm

This series features the Boston skyline after the blizzard on Dec. 26, 2010 shot mostly from the observatory deck of the Prudential Tower.  Albeit looking like a scene from “The Day After Tomorrow” it was memorable trip because it triggered our renewed appreciation for the city.  Aside from being one of  the most dominating sport cities, we love Boston for its charming character, rich historical past and their awesome clam chowdah.   It is considered as one of the oldest cities in the United States and also the unofficial capital of New England.
