Our first week in New Orleans was not much as we spent most of the time in the RV – rained almost every day. The second week we drove around Lake Pontchartrain (didn’t take the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway as it’s a toll bridge and quite expensive for RV’s – plus there’s a section that rises quite steeply and I was a little nervous to take the ‘Bagel Bagel’ over it). Our destination was the Abita Springs Resort and RV Park, a membership park. We had received an ‘invite’ to try it out free for 4 days, so decided to take them up on the offer. OK place but a little isolated. Abita Springs is a small town with no stoplight, so not much to see.
We parked under pine trees – unfortunately, as there were squirrels knocking pine cones off directly overhead, so every so often we’d hear a clunk on the roof. Took us a bit to figure out what was going on.
There’s a nice pond and some pretty homely ducks (I believe they’re Red-faced Muscovy Ducks), but very friendly. Grima enticed them over with a trail of bread crumbs. But then we couldn’t get rid of them.
So, more to come. Love to hear what you have to say about our travels.
