Louisiana looks a lot like the Texas we just left!

Welcome to Louisiana, the bilingual state

So, today is Sunday, January 8th 2012. We had good trip from Galveston, Texas over to Lafayette, Louisiana. Not far, just a few hours along some state roads and eventually onto an interstate freeway, I 10 across the border into Louisiana. We got into Lafayette around 4 pm and punched RV parks into the GSP, found one a couple of miles off the freeway, followed the directions and eventually arrived at a residential address on a very narrow street but did not find anything even remotely resembling an RV park! The GPS has given us some poor information from time to time, but this was one of the most unhelpful ever! So, now that I have an iPad, I got busy with it and found our way back to I 10 and found an RV park along that route in a little place east of Lafayette called Henderson. That is where we are now, parked, walked, fed and relaxing with a glass of wine after our arduous 6 hour day of ferry riding, beach walking, driving and sight seeing! Check out the photos to see what the day was like in pictures and what our surroundings offer. Louisiana is flat swamp land, bayous, and we are noticing tonight, buggy...including mosquitoes! It has cooled down to a nice mid 70F reading on the thermometer and that should be good for sleep...zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
