Wednesday, May 26 - Got diesel fuel for $2.57/gal.....that equals are lowest price so far in our travels.   What I've been hearing on TV seems to project FALLING fuel prices. WOW, that would be wonderful for a change!

Marsha got her hair done today, and we did some grocery shopping. One of those “normal” days around the house. We're getting ready to move on down the road tomorrow. For dinner we got carry-out at two recommended restaurants. Gumbo at Estralita's, 1022 Westbank Expy, Westwego, LA 70094, and a Muffaletta from Mo's. Both were very good. By the way, those unfamiliar with a Muffaletta, it is a flat-bread sandwich with ham, Genoa Salami, Mortadella, Cheese, Olive Salad and Olive Oil sauce....yummy!

It was a really nice evening. We sat outside for quite awhile and then took a walk. You should see the number of huge rabbits in this park. Evidently, even though there are suppose to be fox, coyote, and bob cats in the park, these rabbits are not bothered by predators. There are hundreds of them!

Thursday, May 27- Travel Day. We headed for Betty's RV Park


in the heart of Cajun Country, Vermillion Parish in Abbeville, LA. Betty’s place is more like a Bed and Breakfast than a campground…with just 17 sites, and with her back porch and patio as the daily gathering area. We arrived after a short three hour drive and are one of two MHs in the place. Surprise! Betty says it's because it's summer and has been unusually hot. We went over to the porch for Happy Hour at 4:30.

Wow....stayed almost four hours at happy hour....LOL. Betty hooked us up with a fellow that brings cypress wood out of the swamps...nice carving wood! We're going to stop there tomorrow afternoon. We have all kinds of plans for the next four days here in Cajun Country.
Our campsite


The famous….Betty


Covered Pavilion area for gatherings and Happy Hours, including picnic tables, swings, barbeque pit, and equipped with water and electricity.

Thanks for stopping by. Y’all come back again.
