This is a typical scene here on the island where a scooter serves as a family car. Normally one does not see somebody in a costume on them. Carrying balloons, yes. And yes, helmets are required gear here, but I think everybody looked the other way on this day.
I call these next two shots "Before and After". In the first one, we see this elderly princess and decidedly masculine escort in a natural, relaxed pose.
But, oh, just try pointing a camera at them!
If your daughter needs to see what is going on, what better way than this?
I thought these were the King and Queen. Somebody told me later that they were not. Mmmmm. At any rate, he gets the prize for most original use of a dryer vent hose.
Arrrg. We even had a contingency of pirates. Clowns and pirates belong on the same sinking ship, in my opinion. Enough said.
