This candy bar sums up day 10. Many people that I talk to in real life asked, "Are you crazy? Going on a trip with your family for 7 weeks? In an RV!?" Yes, I knew going into this there would be crazy days...and day 10 was the first one of them.
The morning started out fantastic. We took a walk to the nature center at our campground (Gulf State Park Campground) and saw some really neat animals in the area. By early morning it was hot and humid, so a beach day was in order. We spent about 3 hours on the beach and the kiddos had a blast. Then came the clouds and the downpour.
This is when we were thrilled to have the motorhome right there to hop in and get showered off right away. Then it was back on the highway for about 200 miles as we headed for New Orleans, LA. This seemed like a simple task until we hit some rain. And some more rain and some more rain and a funnel cloud in the distance. I turn into Nervous Nelly when riding in an RV in storms. And have I ever mentioned that my passenger brake petal does not work? No matter how hard I push my foot into the floor..... We did arrive safe and sound at our campground. I am learning my limits and my husband is learning them too! See this is good for a marriage :)
We stayed at the KOA in New Orleans. Off for a much needed evening of R&R.
