Nov 27, 2019 - Traveling with a dog

It is difficult traveling with a dog because you can not take them with you to a lot of places. Therefore, Ernie and I have to take turns going to see certain sites. Like yesterday, i took off for a couple of hours to go see Fort Pickens, while he stayed at the trailer with our dog Dottie. I needed some space out of the trailer as Ernie had spent most of the morning trying to find a replacement for a Combination CO and propane alarm that had to be replaced. They only last for five years and it was beeping all the time so since it was almost...

Nov 26, 2019 - Fort Pickens Florida

Today I walked around Fort Pickens taking pictures and tomorrow I will be going on a tour. This for was intended to be used to protect the US on the coast of Florida but was actually used more for the Civil War. It was built by Souther black slaves and also housed Geronimo a famous Indian Chief who was being held prisoner because he would not give up his right to freedom to the U.S. government. So sad.

Nov 15, 2019 - Mississippi memories

We headed south through the middle of Mississippi to thaw out, since our travel trailer’s water lines froze while we were in Jonesboro, Arkansas. The temperature kept increasing as we drove farther and farther south down Interstate 55. We were surprised to see the rest stops had Security booths. I looked that up on line and found it was because of drug dealing mostly. Anyway, we finally came to Louisiana and the went East on Highway 12 which then turned into Hwy 10. We love staying in natural settings the best and i found Gulf Islands...

Nov 6, 2019 - Foley to Biloxi

Monday was our last full day in Foley. We were out and about a little, after I went to pick up the truck. The battery had been down but they put a full charge on it on Saturday and on Monday morning there had been no loss and nothing was drawing on the battery from the two external items we have added to assist towing. A few groceries were necessary so a trip to Publix. We have been impressed with our exposure to Publix. We also discovered that milk in Foley is unbelievably high. One half gallon was $ 3.10. That was about the same as...

Oct 29, 2019 - Jefferson Davis home and library

This week, I'm parked in a nice RV park right behind the Jefferson Davis home near Biloxi, Mississippi. The home is next to the Jefferson Davis Library, and the Confederate Veteran Cemetery. Last weekend, I walked over, paid my $10 senior admission fee, and spent the afternoon touring the library and the home. . I recognize talent and hard work when I see it, so rather than attempt to do better than Paul and Margery Zeller did in 2011, please click open and read their blog all about this place. The damage to both buildings was severe when...

Mar 25, 2019 - Biloxi, MS

We started this morning warm and bright. The sun was shining, the sky was blue, another great day. Then as we were deciding where to go, the clouds moved in and the downpour started. Happily it didn't last very long. The ride today was short, only 128 miles. We pulled out about 10:45 and were at Gulf Beach RV Park in Biloxi, right across the road from the Gulf beach, by 1 PM. By then the skies had cleared and all was right with the world once more. There may be more storms this afternoon and evening, but we'll deal with that when the time...

Dec 23, 2018 - Biloxi, Mississippi

A very short ride today. We ran about 60 miles down I-10 to Gulf Beach RV Resort in Biloxi, Mississippi. We're right across the street from the Gulf Beaches. For the first time this trip, we got to put the chairs out and sit under the awning on the patio. We're going to sit it out here through Christmas. There's a deck out front by the pool with a nice view of the Gulf. Now if only the rain stays away......

Nov 5, 2018 - Day 6

Full Day in Biloxi today. We woke up to see a sunny day (yay!). Checking online I see they are predicting 78 degrees. We started they day having breakfast at Michael Patrick's at the Golden Nugget. Good breakfast. After, we walked around the GN and surrounding grounds. I showed Cheryl a bridge built after Katrina right next to GN. It was built for the main shoreline highway, but also with pedestrians in mind. It has a 10' wide walkway that is measured off in tenths of miles for walkers. It goes over a major inlet from the gulf and is 1.7...

Nov 4, 2018 - Day 5

I'm glad we enjoyed yesterday's sun and warm temperatures. Today was rain and cool temperatures. We were scheduled to drive to Biloxi MS, but we decided to see a couple more things in Natchez first. We began the day having breakfast at the hotel again. Rain stopped us from looking elsewhere. The food was pretty much the same as yesterday, scrambled eggs, sausage, toaster waffles and French toast, and pancakes from the automatic pancake machine. Cheryl read that Mississippi had the highest rate of hypertension per capita in the nation. After...

May 26, 2017 - Reflection Time!

Before our journey to Canada, Dr. Hopper, our English education adviser told us to keep in mind this quote by Mark Twain: “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.” After seeing and finding out as much as possible in the short time we were in Calgary, I totally agree. Every day that we learned something new from visiting the...

Here we are at our favorite place the “Beau Rivage Casino in Biloxi Ms. We have played for two days. I have lost money and He has won money “What’s New”. I played in the poker room most of the night.

Oct 24, 2016 - A short trip to Biloxi for a couple of days at Cajun RV park

We headed east out of Lakeside RV park towards Biloxi on I-10. It was only a short drive of around 120 miles and we parked at Cajun RV park for a couple of days. We got to visit with some more RV'ing friends met over the years. Earlier this year we spent some time at Cajun and really enjoyed the time spend here. Jim and Laura, Alan and Sandy, Bill and Pearl are just a few of the many friends at the park. It is a nice park that is situated right on the Gulf Coast in Biloxi. A short walk puts you on the those white sand beaches of the Gulf...
