Duson, Louisiana

If you remember yesterday’s Blog entry http://wp.me/pDCku-7ea

we were parked in Eunice, Louisiana. We were here in 2010 and had such a good time at the Liberty Theater…we just had to come back since we were in the area.

Normally it’s two-hours of great Cajun Music and dancing. When we put it on our schedule…we had no idea this weekend’s program was a tribute to Hank Williams, Sr. which you can read all about by clicking this link…

Much to our pleasant surprise three of our new friends from Lake Charles were also there. Ranola, Sue and Cliff…

Here are some photos that I took…

I just love the delightful Cajun accent. You can hear Ranola’s by clicking this link…

The program featured the Jambalaya Cajun Band with four performers doing Hank Williams songs.

The program opened with Hugh Harris…the youngest of the four…and closest to Hank’s death age…29…

Other performers included…Pope Huval…


Steel guitar player Terry Huval…


And 81 year-old D.L. Menard…

It ended up being a great program which we all  enjoyed!

Yesterday we drove the motorhome the about 40 miles southeast to Duson only a few miles from Lafayette, Louisiana.

Along the way we passed through the City of Rayne…Frog Capital of the World! To read why Rayne claims this title, click this link…

Here’s a photo of Mary standing next to a 12 foot-high frog seen as you enter the city…


They have frogs all around the city. Here are a few…





In Duson we ended up parking at VFW Post #9822 where we expect to stay while we explore the nearby area for the next 2-3 days. Sunday Bingo draws a big crowd…


As usual, here’s the dinette window shot…


After a long, full day on Saturday we enjoyed a peaceful and relaxing Sunday afternoon. Back to work today…seeing the sights!

Enjoying musical concerts is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!
