A Short Trip to Grenada, MS
Nov 1, 2010
|Let it never be said that we do nothing spontaneously! LOL
When we travel we are usually on the road at least by 8:00 AM and like to travel for six hours or so.
Today was an exception.
We were up around 5:30 and sat together sipping our coffee, while watching the river with it’s barge traffic going by.
As the sun rose, Marilyn snapped a few pictures to share with you.
We finished our coffee and made a decision to leave today but we were in no hurry.
We visited with our neighbors, Mike and Pat, finally saying “So Long” with shared hugs and a promise to stay in touch.
It was a quarter to ten when we finally left and we passed through Memphis, TN quite easily, with light traffic. That was the latest start we have ever had except when we had the brake problem in Colorado and finally got away late in the afternoon.
We drove less than 100 miles and pulled into Frog Hollow RV Park in Grenada, MS. That was the shortest distance we ever traveled in a full day.
We thought about staying two nights at Frog Hollow, but a call on our cell phone from our friends, Rick & Sherry, from San Antonio, changed our minds for us.
They have been on an extensive trip through the northeast and southeast with their RV and are meeting us in New Orleans, on their way back to San Antonio.
They are arriving today and will be all set up in Bayou Segnette State Park when we arrive tomorrow.
Other former classmates from high school days will be arriving in the next day or so.
We will have a nice time together, as usual, and then we will go our separate ways as Marilyn & I head to Betty’s RV Park in Abbeville, while our long-time friends head for home.
We made a quick run to Walmart, about five miles south of our campground. We purchased some needed supplies and some freshly fried catfish for dinner. Then we stopped to fill the truck with diesel at $2.889 per gallon.
Now we are ready to go tomorrow morning.
It is supposed to rain tonight and tomorrow but we hope it will not hinder our travel as we have five or six hours to go before we set up camp.
New Orleans here we come!
Life is Good!
