Halloween in New Orleans | Part II

It is the Boneyard. There is an article in on the Tulane News site that tells about the family that puts up these fun decorations.

There are more than 50 cleverly displayed skeletons to entertain you. Here is a shot from the local Uptown Messenger at night, showing how fun they look all lit up:

Let’s take a closer look at some of these:

Oh, I almost forgot this picture. The sun was shining brightly and, even though you can’t see the bones very well, I thought this picture was great. Do you see beautiful sunrays or spooky ghosts?

Happy Halloween!

Need something to sip as you are greeting the trick or treaters tonight? How about some Caramel Apple Cider?
