Traveling with Carol, Lou & Beau ....

We have been setting our departure times as 8:00 a.m. and we are pretty close to being perfect. This was so we could get to our destination by mid-afternoon - never after dark. I think we did that once, a long time again - never our choice again. My family will laugh - we go to bed when it turns dark outside!

Our travels on Rte. 10 took us across a Twin Span Bridge that is 18.2 miles long. That is a l-o-n-g ride over water, land, little swamps, etc. So much to see - great for tourists like us. I never realized that the Mississippi River came this far south, running into the Gulf. It has been MANY years since I learned geography in the first place - oh well. Everything is like a new experience about learning.

Our stop after Topsail was a KOA Park near Baton Rouge. (in Denham Springs). It was a nice park too. RV Review is the best place to find wonderful parks. In our time on the road, we only left one park once after we entered it, but were able to find a good replacement.

Baton Rouge offered plantations, casinos and museums to visit, but we (I) usually are not into this - never was. The sightseeing we do 'along the roads' is so very adequate for me. I am as happy as a lark - or ........... happy as a child with a new toy.

We stayed two nights two nights here. It was quite cold outside, but we do stay toasty warm in our little home. Beau likes his sweater, I am sure, although he has not told me so out loud.

Thinking so much about relatives and friends at this wonderful time of year -

Our love to you all ....
