Hey there Campers,

We started out with a partial sunny. Lo wanted us to go to the Waffle House.  Ok. Ya’ll know how picky I am when it comes to food. Oh my. I don’t care if there was one on every corner. All I can say is I am glad I did not sick.

We felt it was time to take a few days off from traveling. We got in the Hilton4 and continued to travel south. Can you imagine being surrounded by water on the highway? Now ya’ll know there are gators in those waters. Whatever you do don’t break down on the causeway because there are no lights.

We tried to stop in Biloxi, MS but the state parks were filled. We decided to go on to Louisiana. We found a lovely place to campout for a few days. Fontainebleau State Park. It sits on Lake Pontchartrain. The weather was sunny, hot and humid. We got a chance to ride our bikes around the camp and to the beach. The park has condos and houses you can rent.


At the beach the water is so shallow you can walk out at least 100 feet.

We stopped and talked to a guy who was catering a BBQ. He had it smelling so good that even I could have eaten it. We asked him how he could stand the heat when it was over 100°+ that day. He told us this was nothing for a true Louisiana native. Even though Lo & I have roots in LA we were dying.

You know you are in a hot area when  the bathrooms have a/c. The bathrooms are called Comfort Stations. They have a kiddy area where you can play in the water. So across from the play area is a pond that has 2 gators. Hmmmmmm… Was someone not think??

During our bike ride we saw almost everyone had a fan. We were curious so Lo stopped and asked. It is to keep the mosquitoes away. What??? It seems to work.

We just chilled out and had a peaceful Sabbath.

Well, campers until next time.

  1. Apparently dry ice is also supposed to attract mosquitoes, so I know people who put a big chunk of dry ice in the corner of the yard and then put the fans on. In places where it is humid and mosquito-laden, I know I would be willing to try ANYTHING!

    When I was a kid, the Comfort Stations were THE BEST. We'd drive cross-country and I was usually sick by the time we reached Louisiana... they rated best bathroom to throw up in. Air conditioning, nice sinks, ladies there keeping it all clean... good times. (Except for the vomiting part.)
