Lunch by the Bay is one of our favorite things to do when on the Coast. Today was no different. We went in search of the perfect café where we could sit outside looking out to the open water, feel the breeze and enjoy the salt air. Only problem, the day was chilly and very windy; no sitting outside today. Continue reading
As members of the C’est la Vie Camping Club, February was our month to host the campout. We were looking for someplace new, yet not too far away from the Baton Rouge/Lafayette area. Clearwater RV Park in Carriere, MS came to mind so we
step out of the C’est la Vie box and planned a trip to Mississippi. Clearwater RV Park had been our home in September 2010 and having enjoyed the park and the area, we thought the club would also enjoy a visit.
McComb, MS – What happened to Kentwood, LA? We generally are where we are staying by 2:00 p.m., but knowing we had only a short drive from Baton to Kentwood, we did not leave Baton Rouge until 1:30 p.m. Arriving at the park in Kentwood, LA, we realized this was not the park for us! By now it was 3:30 p.m. and we had no place to stay and no idea where we would stay. Continue reading
Carriere, MS – Up early. Watch the sun come up over the pond. Put up with the welfare ducks. Fix breakfast. Decide that we’re going to make a small repair to the RV – 10 minutes tops. Of course I didn’t plan on the wall of the RV being a very hard surface so I had to drill a pilot hole, or moisture getting to the drill and not being able to change the screw driver to a drill bit in order to drill a pilot hole. We found ourselves an hour later after our project thinking that a Blood Mary would definitely be in order. This begins a search of the RV for Blood Mary makings only to be disappointed. We decided that a Margarita could take the place of the Bloody Mary even if it was just 10:15 in the morning — hell; it’s got to be 5 PM SOMEPLACE! Continue reading
You’ve heard the chant of Tiger Stadium:
We decided this year we needed to get back to basics and begin to look around for a more down to earth football team where football was more community, honor, pride and sportsmanship. So, bye-bye Big Business College Football LSU (we sold our season tickets) and enter the Itawamba Community College Indians from Fulton, MS. A friend is the Offensive Coordinator for the Itawamba Indians and so we hitched up Cajunville and headed north to the matchup between the Indians and the Pearl River Community College Wildcats in Poplarville, MS. Continue reading
Vidalia, LA – Where the hell is Vidalia? Across the Mississippi River from Natchez, MS. Ah, Natchez – Antebellum homes, hooped skirts, Confederate uniforms, Southern grace. Yes, Natchez has all that and more. Yet one thing it does not have is an RV Park on the river. Vidalia, on the other hand, has River View RV Park which sits on the banks of the Mississippi River, just down river from the bridge. There is a walking trail along the river, no bikes, which is great for exercising and enjoying the view. Continue reading
