Free Time between Workamping Jobs

Sorry I have gotten behind on posting, we finished up our assignment at Confederate Reunion Grounds and have been moving around. 

We left CRG on October 12, after three months workamping there.  It was a wonderful place and one that we really enjoyed.  Learn more about the civil war there than we every learned in school.

We arrive that evening at Park on the Lake on Lake Conroe, it was raining and they had us just set up across from the office for the night.  The next day we were given a great spot and were able to get the dogs out. 

After a few days at the Park on the Lake we went to Tomball and stayed at Spring Creek Park - a county park with free hook ups for one week a month.  It was close to home and we got to spend some time with family and friends.  While there the high schools of Cy-Fair School  District had a track met and it was cool to watch it.

Kylie loves her pose!!

We got a chance to see some of our kids and grand kids for dinner.  Ms Kylie loves to take pictures and always takes my camera . . .

On the morning of October 16th we left and headed for Bay St. Louis, Mississippi.  We decided to make it a two day trip and not to rush as there was no real need.  We needed to be there by the evening of the 17th as Brian and Hunter were  going to join us; Fred and Brian are doing on mud run on the 19th.  We drove our first night to Frog City RV Park in Duson, Louisiana and then had a great dinner at LeJean Seafood in Lafayette.  Fred made it safely across the bridge in Lake Charles and Mississippi River Bridge in Baton Rouge again (he just hates driving across high bridges-lol).

Swamp land around the Visitor Center as you enter Louisiana at the Texas border.  Neat place to stop and look around.

Spillway between Lafayette and Baton Rouge.  I remember when this was built and still love the drive over it.

 The "famous Mississippi River Bridge" at Baton Rouge.  Fred hates driving across it.

This pig looked like it was wandering around the side of the road and the truckers and even Fred slowed down to look.  As you got closer you realized it was not real but it did make people slow down - lol

We made a stop at the roadside rest stop at the turnoff to Bay St. Louis and felt small in the mist of all the truckers

Now on to Bay St. Louis and the Mud Run!!!
