Another short drive to day across I10 to Breaux Bridge. We stopped at Cajun Palms RV Park where I had made reservation to stay a week at the beginning of the Texas Trek but had to cancel when baby Ryleigh didn’t arrive on time. Because I canceled the reservation, I was charged for a day that I could use in the next year. Since I need to get some prescriptions refilled, Breaux Bridge was the first town in Louisiana that had a Rite Aid and it all worked out.

We found out that we have dinosaurs for neighbors. Just down the street were several life size dinosaurs, T-rex and Apatosaurus, behind a “Danger High Voltage” fence. It's Prehistoric Park. In addition to the two dinosaurs that we saw from the road there's a wide variety of realistic-looking steel and fiberglass dinosaur replicas, including some that are animated, inside the park.

The ride along I10 was wet. There were several downpours that caused us to have to slow down to about 30 mph on the interstate to maintain visibility. It looks like we found the rain again as the forecast is calling for rain off and on in this area the next couple of days and the flood warnings are showing up on the phone again, this time for the Sabine River. It looks like Cajun Palms is far enough from the river so as to not cause a problem. I don’t think we’ll have to move if we decide to stay here another day or two. I’m still trying to get my generator fixed and there are a couple of possibilities in this area. We see how that goes tomorrow. Stay tuned.
