Saturday, May 15 – It rained off and on during our drive to Meridian, MS.  We arrived at the Benchmark Coach and RV Park about 2:00 p.m. We need a ton of stuff, so we took the RV Park’s community map and set out of Walmart. There are SUPPOSE to be two Walmarts within minutes of the Park. We put the address in the GPS for the first one, drove for over 15 min. and ended up in an empty field.  OKaaaaaaay, lets try the other one. Again, we put the address in the GPS, drove about 20 min. back the way we just came and found that this Walmart was CLOSED. OH BROTHER. We said forget it, ran into a Winn Dixie, bought a few overpriced items, and went back to the MH. It had started to pour while we were in the store. It rained hard for the rest of the day. Poor you will see in the pictures below, Bella would have loved to be outside. Lots of grass for her to run around on.

When we woke Sunday morning, it was beautiful.

Our campsite….1A

Great place to walk animals.


Sunday, May 16- We left around 9:00 a.m. Our destination, Bay St. Louis, MS. The drive was uneventful other than it rained 85% of the drive.

When it wasn’t raining, the ride was pretty.



We arrived around 1:00, got a great spot in the Silver Slipper Casino RV Park.

This is looking out our window…no zoom here. We are this close!!


We took a drive around the area and saw that there is still damage from Katrina. Visited the Walmart, took a nap and put our toes in the Gulf of Mexico. With all the rain, the beach was empty. We can’t wait to see what it looks like tomorrow.

We have the beach to ourselves.  We haven’t seen any signs of the Gulf Oil Spill so “we beat the oil to the beach.”


We hit the Casino, got our Player’s Card, and to our surprise got one night free at the RV Park…WOW. It is a nice Casino. Paul was the BIG winner. An investment of $20, won him $41. Marsha didn’t do so well….she lost ALL of her $20. That is OK…she usually wins.

Thanks for visiting. Y’all come back.
