The pirates landed on Tybee- despite the rain!

We had so much fun this weekend! Pirate Parties right and left all weekend long. We had many costume changes ( who knew you could purchase so many pirate type clothes! We all gathered to march in the parade on Saturday and despite the very dark clouds gathering over head, we felt very confident the rain surely wouldn’t come a second year in a row.

I guess the weather gods were not happy that our island had been invaded by so many scary looking people. ( honestly the pirate attire on people of ALL ages was truly amazing!)

 

 

So the rains came half way thru the parade and we all just kept marching/ walking / strolling. But so much fun!
My Saturday outfit was the pirate mermaid complete with the flowing mermaid tail.
Too bad you can’t see the sparkly eye make up composed of blue and green sprinkles. And thank you to our friends with Forever Tybee who gave us a ride and proceeded to sing happy birthday to me!
Next year all of you need to be part of our group. But what am I saying- Tybee’s Mardi Gras is Feb 12th and 13th 2010- another parade down Butler Ave!!!
