March 15, Dallas, Texas

Here it is March already and the weather is improving with springâ€™s arrival just around the corner. Again we have had a busy month, even with the cooler weather that seems to have enveloped the nation this year.
We spent a week in Biloxi, Miss., in the middle of February. We stayed in a nice campground within walking distance of the beach. This area still is showing the ravages of the hurricanes from earlier this decade. As you drive along the beach hi-way you see large expanses of vacant property that once were the location of a nice homes destroyed by the storms and the surge that accompanied it. In some cases there is patio furniture placed on the concrete pad to show that someone still comes by to enjoy the view. We also made a day trip to New Orleans and the French Quarter for lunch.
The following Week we visited south-central Louisiana, where we found a nice campground in Breaux Bridge. This is the heart of Cajun country, so we enjoyed the crawfish and other delicious foods offered by the local restaurants. We made day trips to New Iberia and to the Tabasco factory at Avery Island. Both trips are an experience that should not be missed if you are in the area. As usual, we also enjoyed touring the countryside and observing the local wildlife.
We next moved to Marksville, La., and spent some time with old military friends Dean and Judy catching up on our lives and reminiscing about the old days. We also had time to tour the area, stopping in Natchez, Miss., a place we will return to in the years to come.
We are currently parked just east of Dallas, Texas, so we are close to a major airport. This enabled us to fly to Fargo, N.D., this past weekend to attend the wedding of a niece. We had a great time at the wedding and associated events. We also had a chance to visit with all of the relatives who were also able to attend. The weather here has improved so that most days the temperature is in the '70s, which is more to our liking.
We move tomorrow to a campground just to the south of San Antonio where, hopefully, the weather will be much warmer. From there we will start our trek to the north.
