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.
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.
Note: Mary flies from Baton Rouge, Louisiana today to her home in California. I’m hoping to get her back with me by mid-April. My current plans are to stay here for a few days and then start SLOWLY drifting north along the Mississippi River to Memphis, Tennessee where I’ll then turn northeast heading for New England. Can’t go north too fast because it’s still cold up there!
The motorhome is currently parked at VFW Post #4224 in Baker, a few miles north of Baton Rouge.
Yesterday was devoted to laundry and other preparations for Mary’s departure later today. Nothing exciting to report there…so today I’ll share what happened last Saturday after we toured Vermillion Ville. If you missed that Blog entry you can read it by clicking this link…
You can read about this Cajun Music Jam weekly event by clicking this link…
As we entered Vermillion Ville we were followed by August Broussard, one of Louisiana’s most famous Cajun musicians. Broussard, 64, plays the accordion, guitar, steel guitar, harmonica and fiddle. He has been playing the traditional style of Cajun music professionally for over 35 years. He was accompanied by his student, 17-year-old Darien Fontaine. We had previously met August Broussard while in Lake Charles during Mardi Gras about a month ago. To read more about August Broussard, the living legend, click this link…

Cajun Music songs have a tendency to last several minutes. If your feet do not start toe-tapping to this music…you’re dead! A great time was had by all! Mary and I both wished we could be here every Saturday!
Enjoying the Cajun Music Jams is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!
