The 2018 RV Trip Continues
Lily the Flower Girl
Friday, April 6 continued...
We arrived at a small RV park in Monroe, in southern Louisiana. Our goal is to arrive in the Live Oak area of Florida by Monday, so we're not stopping for adventures these next few days. Looks like it was a good idea too because we arrived just in time to sit through a night of severe weather. It was 85 degrees and lightly raining when we parked. Justin started some quick maintenance on the RV while I started laundry, dinner and bathing Lily in the RV tub. Within a half hour, it was torrential rain and heavy winds. I love thunder storms, the excitement of it, but poor Lil was huddled in a corner in the safety of her blankets. Justin and I both became soaked to the bone the few minutes we were outside, and for a while we worried of lightening strikes or wind taking down branches. Nonetheless, it was an eventful night.

We woke to temps in the low 40s, a cold front came in swiftly after last nights storms. No wind damage, but the park was flooded in areas right behind us. I was thankful we were not assigned any of the spaces along the edge of the lake. We pulled out and headed for Mississippi, stopping at a delicious southern buffet for lunch. Our camp for the night was on the Mississippi and Alabama border, in a little park along a small river. Once again, no excursions, so all you get for photos are those of Lil sitting in the many wildflowers blooming along the way. It sure does feel good to be back in a more lush environment.
