Abbeville, Louisiana (GA417)

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ 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 Conner, Washington. I’ll depart here August 13th.

 

 

 

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 March 5, 2013…

 

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…

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…

Abbeville, Louisiana

Mary has safely returned home from a trip to Turkey. She’s resting and editing the many photos she took on the trip.

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Seaside RV Resort in Seaside, Oregon. I expect Mary to catch up with me here around May 25th. I expect to depart here in early June.

I have stayed at this resort several times before and have thoroughly explored the area as far as tourist attractions go. While I wait for Mary’s arrival, I’m occupying my time with some light routine maintenance, cleaning, reading, walking, computer work, listening to music, etc..

A more relaxed mode..

After our 682 day on-the-go 2011-2013 circumnavigation of the United States, we have decided to slip into a more relaxed mode. In the next few months we will be traveling through areas previously explored. Unless we do something unusual, this Blog will feature a photo album from the circumnavigation and will change daily.

To read about today’s photo album location, click this link… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abbeville,_Louisiana

CLICK ON THE BELOW PHOTO. ONCE YOU ARRIVE AT THE PHOTO ALBUM, SIMPLY CLICK “SLIDESHOW” AND ENJOY!

Abbeville, Louisiana

I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE PHOTOS.

Yesterday was a cloudy/sunny with showers day at 60 degrees. Forecast for today is cloudy with showers at 59 degrees.
