Photos of the Week – August 11th – 17th, 2014

The Red Beans and Life team has been pretty busy this week. Between partying with the rest of the city at the Superdome to celebrate the Saints return to town, and road trips out to Covington / Lakeview, we’ve managed to capture a few pictures to share with you. Here’s the best from our week!

Mardi Gras Fountain in Lakeview
Did you know there was a Mardi Gras fountain in New Orleans? We didn’t! It’s pretty cool, with a different mosaic for every Krewe!

New Orleans Saints - First Preseason Game of 2014 in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome - Slight Filter
For some reason, our Press Passes that we totally received seemed to have been switched for seats in the Upper Deck. We’ll take our Saints however we can get them!

A Beautiful House in Covington Louisiana
Covington, Louisiana can be very pretty! Exhibit A: See above. Exhibit B and C: See below:

Covington Trailhead Water Tower

Flowers and Butterflies and Prettiness Oh My

Bicycles Yield to People Yield to Horses Yield to Bikes
In other words, yield to everyone.

A beautiful tree-covered road in Chalmette Louisiana - seriously chalmette - we were surprised too
Why did no one tell us Chalmette could be so pretty? We might’ve visited sooner!

About Flynn

Flynn may be the only person in New Orleans who wishes it was a little hotter in the Summer. He enjoys anything competitive, large piles of Mexican food, and drinks that are uncomfortably pink.
