from our 4th & 7th Journeys

I found out Mardi Gras is celebrated from Galveston, Texas to New Orleans and beyond. So I decided to attend the event in 3 different places. The first was Lafayette, Louisiana. The second was in Baton Rouge, but it got rained out. So Mardi Gras in Lafayette is included

These 5 videos are the last of the 3rd journey. They include the charity that benefited from our sponsors-The “Wings of Hope Wildlife Sanctuary”-I didn’t want to pick one where 95% of the proceeds would go to admin and that our small contribution would make a big difference. Leslie Latt started this sanctuary and I couldn’t film the wildlife that was being rehabilitated but I saw her volunteers taking care of the animals they were rehabilitating. It’s a feeling that I can’t put into words. It takes a special breed (no pun intended) to take on this task. I got help from a local-Sandy-to make the final stop on this 3rd journey. It’s been an experience.
Thanx to all the sponsors, hosts, interviewees and fans
