On impulse this morning we decided to drive the Creole Nature Trail that begins in Sulphur, Louisiana and ends in Cameron Parish. The drive is a beautiful one with wild flowers, marsh grasses and a variety of water fowl on display. Fishing camps and duck hunting sites are an outdoors man's dream. We were the only ones with no fishing gear and every family was fishing for next weeks dinner. I do miss seeing the beautiful red wing black birds that were part of my commute everyday when I lived in Lake Jackson and they were everywhere along the trail.

Those of you who have campers know what a treat it can be to park an RV in the dark. In this case we were also in a park that was full of large family groups with lots kids still riding bikes after dark and generally doing what kids do.....around our moving camper. Our neighbors however, were very kind; they brought out their flashlights and helped watch different corners of the camper as Ron maneuvered into a tight spot. More helpers is not always a good thing, but we finally got settled in and thanked all the good folks who had strong accents , ... read more
