Good article from Moms Team Institute of Youth Sports Safety.
Halloween in the French Quarter. New Orleans loves them some fencing! We were asked multiple times to fence for people. This clip was shot on Rue St. Louis. Everyone was have such a great time. It was wonderful to be able to entertain them.
After our time in New Orleans the Gateway Death Angels fencers headed to Florida for fencing in the sand and surf. We were unable to visit historic Fort Pickens. The hurricane that hit the week before we got there left 5 feet of sand covering the road to the fort. Still, sunny skies and warm seas made for a wonderful trip!
We arrived in New Orleans Friday afternoon. Checked into the hotel, then made a beeline to the French Quarter for dinner and some sightseeing.
Of course we are searching for Jean Lafitte!
After dinner we stopped at Cafe Beignet for some dessert and jazz. But we couldn’t stay long. We fence early the next morning.
After the tournament on Saturday morning we headed back to the French Quarter for pictures and fun. It’s Halloween after all!
We had to search long and hard to find a place that served non-alcoholic pina coladas. Success!
Then off to Chris Owens Blues Bar for some jazz and dancing on stage ala Saturday Night Fever.
Fencing in the rain? Why not?
