Mardi Gras Rock and Roll Marathon

I didn't get a chance to show photos from the New Orleans Mardi Gras  Rock and Roll Marathon a couple weeks back.  Our son, Charles, was racing in it.  We've been to a few of these, but this was perhaps the best (for us spectators) -- the scenery of City Park, the magnificent, stately, shady oaks along the path, bands every mile.  It was a  pleasant day in the park.

The oaks look like the ones on our street. We have two large oats at the street and one in the middle of the front yard. I have been racking up the oak leaves for the last four weeks.

I so love those big oaks.
Hope your son did well in the marathon!

Wonderful photo, Steve. That park is truly a jewel in New Orleans' crown.
