Lake Arthur, Louisiana Day 2 (GA405)

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 5,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 23rd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in La Connor, Washington. I’ll depart here July 16th.

Since my RVing life is changing (see above), I’m starting to re-visit previously visited places. So rather than constantly re-blogging past entries, I’ve decided to do something different.

This entry was posted February 20, 2013…

 

 

 

The motorhome is parked at American Legion Post #403 in Lake Arthur, Louisiana.

 

 

We had planned to depart today…but the weather forecast is terrible…severe thunderstorms with large hail and significant risk of tornadoes.  Since we are safe here we’ve decided to stay. Then the locals keep on inviting us to see activities here, so I expect we’ll be here another two-three days.

 

 

Yesterday we drove the Bronco the about 15 miles southeast to the small town of Gueydan which claims the motto…Duck Capital of America. You can read about Gueydan by clicking this Wikipedia link…
