Day Three and Still in Louisiana

I didn't have access to wifi yesterday, so I will catch up now. We left Mary's house in Bastrop at 9:15 am Tuesday and expected to get to Caushatta by 2 pm. Unfortunately there was a serious accident on I 10 outside of Beaumont (my least favorite road) and we sat on the freeway for over 2 hours before we started to inch our way to Louisiana. There was a major accident with an 18 wheeler that caused the back up. We finally arrived at the campground at about 5:30. I found that my van A/C doesn't work well when the van is stopped. It was so warm in the van that the candy Mary gave me me turned into a blob of chocolate. Every time the dogs came near me, I sprinkled water on them to try to cool them down a little. When we finally got to the caground, I asked to stay another night. I am now considering staying one more night because I had trouble sleeping last night and am not ready take off.

Anyway, I am going to try to post pictures from day one at Mary's. You can see Mary's two sweet dogs in the background. It is so nice to see my dogs comfortable with bigger dogs.

We have camped in the driveway previously but this time we stayed in her guest room. The camper rested in the driveway.

Yesterday was relaxing; reading, walking the dogs, eating and spending time in the casino. I actually came out ahead financially for a change!

But last night, as often happens, I couldn't sleep. Maybe this is part of the reason.

There just doesn't seem to be enough room in our bed for all 3 of us!

I am now at the campground clubhouse doing laundry and writing my blog. I am really considering staying one more night. Then I plan to use my GPS to take me to various cities and not just to my destination. I really want to go to Ashville, NC, among other places.
