While it sounds repetitive, we woke to a clear sky and temperatures in the mid-30os. However, over the next couple of days the highs are going to be lucky to get out of the 50os … although a consolation is that it’s warmer than back home.
we began to retrace our westward trek across the lowlands of Louisiana beginning with a dead-straight, 18-mile long roadway
and Atchafalaya National Wildlife Refuge.
After entering Mississippi, we pulled into the state’s Welcome Center. As we parked, we spotted one of the most unusual RV’s we’d seen in quite some time … a pink-trimmed “teardrop” trailer
As well as a hand-carved, oak eagle
hewn from a branch off of the Katrina Sculpture located at Keesler Air Force Base.
After arriving and settling in at the Hollywood Casino RV Park
We next headed west along the Gulf shore, an area that was devastated when Hurricane Katrina came ashore
Sitting along the shore we were treated to another spectacular sunset.
This evening we went to the Hollywood Casino
While, neither of us gamble, we took note of how few people at the slots or playing poker really seemed to be having any fun.
And, throughout the casino, smoking is permitted and the stench was overwhelming and we couldn’t wait to leave!
