It was hard to leave New Orleans just as Mardi Gras was getting started, but we had to get back to work.
Just before we got to the park, we stopped in the town of Seaside, Fla. along 30A where a group of seven Airstream food trucks were lined up. We had an awesome dinner at Barefoot BBQ, the only one that was still open late in the evening. If you go, try the BBQ nachos. Yum!
The next day, we learned that Krew of St. Andrews was hosting a Mardi Gras parade in Panama City, so we decided to check it out. We missed the big parades in NOLA, so this was a nice treat. There were giant floats and beads galore. We caught our fair share!
