Well, I’m feeling completely naked. My blog camera is broken! No shrimpfest photos. Nothing of the parade. Nothing of the fireworks. Nothing of the seven streets’ worth of artists and their work. Not a single photo of the 150,000 people here this weekend. And worst of all, NO PIRATES… They say a picture is worth 1000 words but I hope you’ll forgive me for not typing a 15,000 word essay to describe the scenes that I would have photographed this weekend. But I will say that my favorite shot this weekend would have been of our neighbor’s upper porch that was cloaked in the hull of a pirate ship – complete with canons, a skeleton crew and sails – while they all sat on the porch below drinking grog.

While I try to get my camera sorted out, please enjoy the photos from last year’s parade.
