The cool damp dreary rainy weather continued so, after a morning meeting of the minds, it was decided that we would stay put and eat left over fish chowdah for lunch. After lunch we took a short walk around the campground between the rain drops, partook in Tea Time, had some computer time, took a short nap in our recliners, and went out to dinner at El Mesquite Grill, the highlight of the day.
New Orleans will have to be put back on the Bucket List for a future visit during milder weather conditions. We had discussed doing the World War II Museum but, being that we will be visiting the Pacific War Museum in Fredericksburg, we decided against it.
The El Mesquite Grill proofed to be more than an adequate Mexican restaurant. The restaurant certainly didn’t have much appeal from the outside, but the dinners were very good. All of us were happy with our meals – does that mean they were “Happy Meals”? I don’t think so, Tim!!
So there you have it, our big adventure. Here’s a picture of CC and Winne sitting in the rain at Bayou Segnette State Park. As you can see, they have large sites; also, we have great wooden decks but, unfortunately, due to the weather, we didn’t get to enjoy sitting out on them for Tea Time.
Today we make tracks to Kinder, Louisiana and, then, onto to Livingston, Texas to visit our home state. We live on Rainbow Drive and haven’t been home since October of 2006. While we are there we’ll need to have the truck inspected, apply for our absentee ballots, and look into a health insurance supplement for when I turn Medicare this summer. We’ve been told to be sure and dine at Florida’s restaurant, so a trip there is in the offering.
Take Care For Now and May God Bless - - - - - - - - -
