All the work on the rig was finished by yesterday afternoon, so I spent one more night at Thibodeaux’s Premiere RV before heading out this morning. I didn’t rush things getting out of there since my journey today was around 165 miles. The drive was uneventful except for a little nerve wracking detour after going through Alexandria. I-49 was suddenly closed and we had to exit. It ended up being about a seven mile detour, but there was only one tiny little detour sign to give you any idea where you were supposed to go. Even the big 18 wheel truck drivers were going in circles. Luckily, I spotted that one little sign and eventually got back on the interstate.
By 2:00 I was set up, once again, in the Ajax Country Livin’ RV Park about 17 miles north of Natchitoches, LA. This is a Passport America park that is only a half a mile off I-49.
When I went into the office to register, I told them my name. (I had called for a two night reservation yesterday afternoon.) The lady said, “Oh Judy Bell, what a cute name!” Huh?? “You stayed here almost exactly a year ago with us. Would you like your same spot?” I said, “Sure.” That’s the first time a campground owner has remembered me from a brief two night stop. I didn’t even have to pull out my Passport America card as she had my number from last year. Very nice.
After getting everything hooked up, Emma and I headed out for a walk. I remembered this lovely swing facing the pond from last year. It was peaceful and relaxing once again.
I’ve often wondered if Emma remembers places we have stopped before. As I sat down in the swing…
she did the same exact thing she did last year… a good roll in the green grass. After four nights in a gravel parking lot, she found pure bliss in the grass.
Like last year, I also don’t have any rigs on either side of me. What a nice little place this is, and did you notice the locked in DISH on the top of the motorhome? Wahoo!
The last time I was here, I visited a National Park Service historic site with a plantation. This time, I’m thinking about a pecan plantation and store for tomorrow and a couple of other places. I have a grandgirl that just loves honey roasted pecans, so that will be first on my list tomorrow.
My tentative plan is to leave on Sunday, but there are possible severe storms in the forecast for that day. If that happens, I’ll just sit tight until the weather improves. After all, they’re still having snow in Minnesota, and I’m not anxious to experience that.
Thanks for stopping by… talk to you later, Judy
