Since we only have a four-and-a-half-hour drive, we started our travels a tad later this morning. This gave me some time to pay monthly bills. I cannot believe that August is just around the corner – as is our 45th wedding anniversary (August 3rd)

This morning, the path we drove was lined with lush green grass decorated by the purple of fireweed and dotted by yellow wildflowers. With the mesas in the background, the panoramas were spectacular.

The road was smooth enough for me to get some journaling done. It is so easy to get behind. Due to the faulty internet service, I have not been able to post in a while. As long as I keep the journal updated, the posting will be easy.

Ross H. Maclean Rotary RV Park is basic . . . lots of road noise, but okay for an overnight rest. They were not too full when we arrived. They only had a back-in available though; so we had to unhook the tow vehicle. There were only ten spots with full-hookups.

The staff was super friendly and allowed us to borrow two DVDs. Why don’t more RV Facilities do that!?! We wanted to take the short walk to Lake Charles. Unfortunately, I was not feeling a hundred percent, so I suppered on a can of Chicken Noodle Soup. Paul made us popcorn and we watched the two movies.

Wildlife Spotted: What a difference a day makes, today only a Hawk taking flight from a fence post; two dead black bears, one just a baby; a dead fawn; (mayhaps the lack of animals was due to the increase of traffic on the road.)


Looks Like the Park is Full; However, there are  Only 10 Full Service-All Lining the Fence.
