Abbeville, Louisiana

The motorhome is currently parked at VFW Post #9822 in Duson, Louisiana.

Yesterday we drove the Bronco the about 15 miles south to visit the Town of Abbeville which you can read about by clicking this link…,_Louisiana

First stop was in the central square where there are some beautiful huge old Oak trees. I would say without a doubt that these Oak trees are the largest we have seen during this current visit to Louisiana. Several of the branches are so long and heavy they have to be supported by metal poles…

Here are some photos that I took…

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…








Then we crossed the street into the Abbeville Museum in which the docent Cheryl was very knowledgeable and helpful by describing all of the artifacts. You can read about the museum by clicking their official website link…



In early November, Abbeville has a giant 5,000 egg omelet festival which you can read about by clicking this link…








After Hurricane Rita in 2005, Abbeville was under water…




A short walk to the nearby church…



Around the side of the church we saw these huge Steen’s syrup cans. We didn’t stop in, but here’s their website link…


To the cemetery in the back of the church…



Back at the motorhome later in the afternoon I shot these two photos of the sunset which I decided to do in black and white…



All in all…another nice day.

Enjoying historical towns 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!

    I notice you stay at VFW’s quite a bit – do you pay them or do they allow veteran’s (or in my case, a veteran’s wife) to park there? 33 months unitl retirement and the open road!

      Hi Brenda,
      I stay at VFW, American Legion, Eagles, Moose and when Mary is with me at Elks…she’s the Elk member. Most are struggling financially so I generally leave a $3 a night donation for just parking in their lot and $5 if they provide an electrical outlet. If the folks are extra friendly and helpful I frequently leave a larger donation. I always give the donation in the form of a check so that I’m sure the club gets it…not the bartender. I do not know the VFW rules for wives…you need to check with a VFW Post for that information.
