New Roads

We left FL on Jan 28, saying goodby to old  friends and many new friends. As usual leaving with many places left not visited, so we will have to put it on the list of places we need to return to. But our plans were to head to LA and Betty's RV Park for the month of Feb and visit places we missed last year. We traveled back roads in FL and stopped the first night in Port St. Joe FL. was a Passport America(PA) Campground that was empty and the signs said pick a spot so we did---- right at the waters edge of St.Joseph Bay-- a really neat spot. Lillian, AL was our next stop at  the KOA we stayed at with Chet Beeswanger two yrs ago. Thought we would enjoy the hot tub but it started raining and rained hard all night. The next morning--clear skies and  new roads for the Little Green Truck-- US 90 through AL and MS. These roads follow the Gulf of Mexico-- very often running right on the shoreline with only the beach between . We stopped on Long Beach, MS about 20 mi. from Biloxi and found another PA park (Magic River Resort). Again the signs said pick a spot and we will catch you tomorrow. Very nice campground, neat spot, just a little hard to find, but worth looking for. A couple other people said they came for a few days and stayed for three weeks. Jan said she needed her casino fix so we went back to Biloxi and the Hard Rock Casino. Spent 5 or 6 hrs and had a good dinner and broke even like we usually do at the casinos. Sometimes Jan wins and sometimes I win but never together so even is about the best we can do. Still a fun evening out. Monday morning was off to Betty's on US 90 yet until we reached New Orleans and the the Interstate to get around The Big Easy. Back on 90 for the rest of the trip. We ran into rain again but reached Abbeville about 4 o'clock, just in time for happy hour and some new friends. We also arrived into the middle of "WhoDat" and Saint's madness.  Superbowl fever is high with the natives displaying their Whodat! and Saints shirts and flags. A big party planned here at the park tomorrow.
