Bayou Segnette State Park, NOLA…

After we left Baton Rouge, the plan was to head to our favorite Louisiana State Park – Fontainebleau, just north of Lake Pontchartrain, which is New Orleans’ northern border.  We very seldom make reservations when we travel, and this was no exception!  We had decided to head there on Friday evening thinking that the more […]

Poche’s Fish N’ Camp Campground, (near Lafayette), LA…

After we finished visiting Monroe, LA, we trekked south to a little town just east of Lafayette, called Breaux Bridge.  Here we stayed, for 4 nights, at… Poche’s is an 85 acre, back to nature, peaceful campground that has 88 full hookup campsites, available in both 30 amp and 50 amp. The office has a […]

Duck Commander headquarters and Beth’s 18th b-day!

Super fun stop if you are a Duck Commander fan!

Last weekend, we HAD to visit West Monroe, Louisiana while we were in the vicinity (which according to my kids is about a 300 mile radius) – W Monroe was close enough to our RV park near Houston, apparently. Why (?) do you ask.  Well, if you have to ask, you probably won’t get it. […]

The whole reason we are heading east…

We’ve told everyone that we are going east this winter, but not why.   We ‘did Florida’ and the east coast(ish) last winter, and while we enjoyed it, it is a lot of fuel from Montana, and the FL rat-race isn’t really our cup of tea (tho we LOVE Big Cypress).   😉 But we […]

Poverty Point Reservoir campground in Louisiana…

After our wonderful time in Shreveport, we headed east to Monroe, Louisiana.  We drove right through, and past about 40 miles to the Poverty Point Reservoir State Park.  So far, we have loved the Louisiana State Parks (including our past experiences with Fountainebleau)! Poverty Point Reservoir state park is located on a 2700 acre man-made […]

Cypress Black Bayou Recreation Area…

For our time in Shreveport, Louisiana, we stayed at Cypress Black Bayou Recreation Area, just 12 miles north of 220.  The park is located on a 86 acres, and borders the Cypress Bayou Reservoir.  The park has 73 campsites (11 FHU,and the rest are W/E) as well as additional tent sites.

All good things eventually come to an end – even bass fishing in Texas

co-rvr-009-300x199

(in this case, the end of our bass fishing in Texas is signified by a 2 week park limit, and a full freezer!) We just finished up 2 weeks in one of our favorite places ever.  A little RV park located just west of Houston, on the Colorado River.We spent the ENTIRE 2 weeks fishing.  We is not […]

Christmas…

This is what happens when you tell Molly that she can make her own sandwich…yuck.  we had to take half of it off (but no, we didn’t burst her ‘I’m so proud’ bubble)! LOL! We have lots of deer to watch at this park too…The guys have been doing their usual thing…They’ve been troopers about doing a […]

the end… :(

of our fishing Padre Island this year. While we were on Padre Island National Seashore, we visited the visitor’s center several times… We stopped there one morning to inquire how the beach driving condition were.  Obviously, we don’t drive on the beach much (just when we are here), so we wanted to ask about how […]

Spoiled…

While we were on Padre, we had ‘George’ over for dinner quite a bit (because we caught lots of salt water catfish! LOL!).  When any of the fishermen on the beach would get a bite, George would fly or run down to the beach and stop just behind and off to the side, of the fisherman.  George […]
