Swamp Tour and Alligator Bites!

A couple hundred yards up the road from the little camping area we are in, is the Honey Island Swamp Tours office.  They run 5 or 6 boats up and down the West Pearl River doing tours.  They only charge 25 bucks a person, so we all decided to go check out what a Louisiana swamp has to offer.  Even before we got on the tour we were sitting waiting and in the swamp behind the office were a couple logs, and on the logs were turtles, sunning themselves.  The funny thing is that if another turtle wanted on, he would try to crawl up and the log would tip a bunch of them off into the water.

A Short Move

It was cloudy here all day yesterday so we didn't really think much about the position of the Ponderosa with regard to the sun.  Sure enough, we were parked just in the perfect spot so that we will be in the shade all day!!  So it was time to reposition.  We just had to back around the corner and get out of the shade.  Here is where we ended up.  Thats us on the far side.  Pretty nice eh???

Back with the Gang

Its a little bit chilly today but what the heck, it is still winter in the south!!!   Chilly for us is anything under 18C.   We have absolutely nothing planned for today other than relaxing and catching up.  We are all set up in the square circle again and just waiting on Ed and Lessie to get here to close up side 4.

Happy St. Patricks Day!!

Paddy, the Irishman is struggling to find a parking space.  "Lord," he prayed.  "I can't stand this.  If you open up a space for me, I swear I'll give up the Guinness and go to mass every Sunday!  Suddenly, the clouds part and the sun shines on an empty spot.  Without hesitation Paddy says, "Never mind, I found one!!"

Moving Farther West

Well it was time to move on down the road.  We all met at Uncle Terry and Aunt Diane's for morning coffee around 10 am.  A few trips down memory lane and it was 11 o'clock and time to pack up.  We have to vacate our spot by noon.  Everyone gathered around for a family picture.  Its been fun spending a couple days with everyone.
