Thursday, April 29 – We played Mexican Train for the last time this evening. Had to say good-bye to our domino playing friends. Marsha pulled it off with out tears. Way-to-go Marsha!!!!! LOL
Here are some pictures of our dear friends. We miss you already.
Fran and Wayne..they are setting up for a play.
Louise and Paul
Marsha’s dear friend, Peggy.
Unlike Mexican Spinner, Mexican Train has different rules, set up and strategy. This is what some of the layouts look like when someone wins.
A special friend stopped by to say hello.
Marsha found this blow up Longhorn on the give away table. She was so excited. She picked it up, plugged it in, and sent Kelly a text asking her if she wanted to put it in her classroom. Kelly said “Sure.” We now have it in the MH.
Friday, April 30 – WE FINALLY HIT THE ROAD TODAY!!!!! YEA!!!! We pulled out of Livingston, TX at 8:30 am and arrived at Ameristar Casino Campground in Vicksburg, MS at about 3:30 pm. It is overcast and a rainy day.
This is our campground. Nothing to write home about but price is right and it is in sooooo close to the historical center of Vicksburg. The roads are paved, all sites are pull-thru and paved, and each site has a paved patio with a picnic table.
It was an uneventful drive....my first drive of any distance since my back surgery. Even Bella enjoyed the trip sitting for a long time on Marsha's lap. She only spent a little time under the couch – her normal travel site – she's such a scary cat. We will be here about 3 days checking out the historical sights and venturing to the casinos in the evenings. We are camped on the shores of the GREAT MISSISSIPPI.....well, actually across the street. It sure is a big river!
Some pictures of the Might Mississippi.
This is the bridge we went over to Vicksburg.
This is the very old railroad bridge that went over the Mississippi. They no longer use this bridge.
Where the railroad came out from under the ground.
So happy that we are traveling again. Thanks for stopping by. Our next post will be of historic Vicksburg.
