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 Bow, Washington. I’ll depart here July 23rd..

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.

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

Yesterday we waited out the weather forecast of severe thunderstorms with large hail and significant risk of tornadoes. Fortunately, the tornado warnings ended at 7:00 PM with none occurring. We did receive some heavy rain squalls and some wind.

 

 

Every Thursday the American Legion members go into the post kitchen and cook up a meal. Yesterday it was Jambalaya and yummy…

We were told not to leave Lake Arthur until we experienced a Bloody Mary at the LA Bar. Mary drinks them, I do not. She said it was unusual and tasty…

We started to stroll along the waterfront…got as far as the old Oak tree before a rain squall drove us back to the Bronco…

A good portion of our day was spent reading our books. Our departure plans remain undecided at this time. Another enjoyable day in Louisiana!

La Conner To Bow, Washington

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

Yesterday I drove the motorhome 22 miles from La Connor to the Thousand Trails Mount Vernon RV Resort located in Bow, a few miles north of Mount Vernon, Washington. I’ll depart here August 2nd.

 

 

I’ve been here several times in past years. My membership allows a maximum of a three-week stay, out for one-week and then you can return to the first park.

 

 

I’m just hanging out taking maximum advantage of my Thousand Trails membership and very agreeable weather.

 

Bow, Washington has a population of 6,099, and as a child, the famous CBS news correspondent Edward R. Murrow lived here.

 

The below Google Earth images show the relative locations. The upper right is Bow and lower left is La Conner which I’ll move back to after my seven-day stay here…

While the campground appears to be near Interstate Highway 5, it is buffeted heavily by beautiful tall fir trees. Only a little very low highway noise can be heard when the wind is out of the west…

A welcome sign in the hallway…

 

 

 

 

The family lodge is on the upper level…

 

 

 

 

And a final view of the other side of the lodge building…

 

 

 

There are a number of reasons that this area is my favorite place to spend the summer, such as: scenic beauty, agreeable climate, clean air, friendly people, and no bugs are some.

 

 

I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE PHOTOS.

Forecast for today is sunny and 78 degrees.

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…

 

 

 

Yesterday we drove the motorhome the about 40 miles from Sweet Lake to Lake Arthur, Louisiana.

 

 

In my last Blog entry I mentioned how we had spent the night in the parking lot of the Cameron Prairie National Wildlife Refuge which we did not get to visit until just before our departure yesterday morning.

 

 

Inside was a life-sized replica of an Alligator which we have not seen in real life. We are told that it’s too cold and they are in hiding until warmer weather…

 

 

 

 

 

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…

A short walk put us at the observation post…

006

 

 

 

 

 

There were a number of Roseate Spoonbills in the area. Photography was difficult because there was a strong, cold wind. I had no tripod so I hand-held. They were far away and other than the ones that had their heads under their wings to stay warm, were constantly moving. Nonetheless, I got a few photos…

Then the 40 mile drive to Lake Arthur. Just when I think it cannot happen again…it does! More super-friendly people where we are parked at American Legion Post #405…

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s the dinette window shot…

We’re expecting to depart here tomorrow.

 

 

Enjoying beautiful Roseate Spoonbills wild in nature another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

We Visit Dirty Miller in Grand Chenier, Louisiana! (GA402)

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.

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 18, 2013…

 

 

 

NO INTERNET SIGNAL AT LAST NIGHT’S LOCATION…LATE POSTING THIS MORNING.

 

 

 

 

 

Yesterday we drove the motorhome the about 40 miles from Holly Beach to Grand Chenier, Louisiana. The yellow line on the below Google Earth image shows our route…

CNTGC

 

 

The day started with a beautiful sunrise over the Gulf of Mexico…

 

 

 

 

 

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…

 

 

 

 

 

001a

 

 

 

 

 

The gulf was nearby on our right as we drove east along the shore route…

005

 

 

 

 

 

We were also on the Creole Nature Trail…

008a

 

 

 

 

 

018

 

 

 

 

 

We took the ferry from Holly Beach across the Calcasieu Waterway 1/4 mile to Cameron on the far shore…

009

 

 

 

 

 

013

 

 

 

 

 

About 25 miles later we came to the Mermentau River Bridge where we stopped to take a few photos…

032

 

 

 

 

 

023

 

 

 

 

 

038

 

 

 

 

 

035

 

 

 

 

 

We started along this narrow road following the river shore…

010

 

 

 

 

 

About two miles later the road narrowed to a single lane and a sign saying PAVEMENT ENDS. I said to Mary…I don’t think I want to do this. Looking to the left we saw our only escape…a circular driveway…

048

 

 

 

 

 

As we made the circle we could hear someone shouting at us. I asked Mary we he said and she replied she did not know. So, I decided to stop…and that’s when we met him…DIRTY MILLER…a crazy, Cajun Coonass…

039

 

 

As we approached his shed…he shouted…it’s not done cooking yet! I asked him what was cooking and he replied…Cowboy Stew! With him was his girlfriend Rachael whom he calls Ray-Ray and several other friends. He introduced himself as Dirty Miller. His real name is Pravato Miller. He works for Cameron Parish and has lived there all of his life.

 

 

 

 

 

He explained the concrete slab in front of his shed covers the remains of his house which was destroyed by Hurricane Rita in 2005…

046

 

 

 

 

 

Next thing we knew he was giving us the grand tour of his utility shed which includes among other things…a refrigerator, cooking stove, washer and dryer, a great sound system and numerous photos…

040

 

 

 

 

 

049

 

 

He had a little to drink by then and kept repeating…I love life and having fun and I’m one crazy Cajun Coonass! He also told us that he was a guide who has had a number of famous people as clients…including Hank Williams, Jr.

 

 

 

 

 

He and the crowd were super friendly and a barrel of laughs. We were fast becoming friends…so much so that Mary shared a tobacco chew with him…

050

 

 

 

 

 

All the while the French Cajun Music was blaring away and dancing happened…

058

 

 

 

 

 

As time passed it was time for delicious Cowboy Stew and coleslaw…

056

 

 

As he was stirring the stew, I asked the ingredients and you can enjoy his Cajun accent by clicking this link…
http://youtu.be/t2LCubq0RCA

 

 

 

 

 

He’s a gun collector and showed Mary the largest handgun made…a Smith & Wesson 50 caliber…

060

 

 

 

 

 

He wanted to show us how loud it was and we were absolutely amazed when he actually hit the beer can…

061

 

 

 

 

 

This dog wasn’t impressed…

054

 

 

 

 

 

Nor this dog…

063

 

 

 

 

 

He offered to show us the scenery along the gravel road that included cattle…

065

 

 

 

 

 

And lots of birds and ducks of which Mary took many photos…

069

 

 

 

 

 

By now we were fast friends…

047

 

 

 

 

 

He invited us to spend the night in his driveway…which we did. Here’s the dinette photo…

001

 

 

 

 

 

He and Ray-Ray insisted on cooking us a breakfast…

006

 

 

 

 

 

So at 6:00 AM they served us a tasty shrimp, crab and crawfish omelet complete with home-made hot sauce…

007

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s the view from Dirty Miller’s shed just before we left this morning…

008

 

 

Needless to say we had a ball visiting Dirty Miller and his friends. He really did not want us to leave and he actually had tears in his eyes as we made ready to depart.

 

 

A whole bunch of that great Louisiana Cajun hospitality. Thanks y’all for a great visit!

 

 

Enjoying meeting fun and interesting people is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!
