Hello, New Orleans!
The RV park is beautiful and is set up in the style of New Orleans with brick walkways, a brick bar we can use, hot tub and the requisite pool. I love the setting and the fact that we can waddle right down to Bourbon street where the action is - or was.
About 5 hours wandering the streets got us back to the RV around 9:30 pm which is quite late for us. We're like Ben Franklin - early to bed and early to rise; we just don't have the wise part quite down yet.
So, my learning curve continues with my first back up into our RV slot. I was nervous about it but needn't be as I did pretty well. The fact that the truck was askew had no bearing on the fact that the camper was straight. It did look pretty goofy though with the truck going mostly sideways so John straightened it out. I could have done it but he said he 'wanted practice.' Hmmm...methinks he doubted my abilities.
We got up at 5 and, after a few cups of coffee, hit the streets again to buy provisions for breakfast at the local market. Got waylaid and ended up at the Harrah's casino (yes, one of us appears to have a gambling issue - no need to mention names....) where we dumped, oh, never mind.n Let's just say the morning included a great and very long walk but was not monetarily profitable unless you count the $0.13 I found in 4 separate spots. This town appears to be full of lost money - some of which I refused to pick up as it was just in a gross spot.
We're sitting at the pool right now where the sun is just peeking out from behind a clouded sky. It's the perfect setting and I've got the perfect man beside me. We've had a wonderful trip so far. As John has said many times over the 5.5 years we've been together, "I don't hate you or anything."
