It has been nearly 4 months since our last entry and we are a long way from Port Isabel Texas. We spent the remainder of December in South Texas spending the Christmas Holidays in Mission and then moving back to the coast spending the New Year holiday in South Padre Island. We then started our trek along the gulf coast stopping at Corpus Christi and Houston before departing Texas for Louisiana.
We spent a week in Breaux Bridge which is just to the east of Lafayette. This is a nice town deep in the heart of Cajun country. The food is great with a lot of local restaurants serving all of the Cajun delicacies. We enjoy this area the people are friendly and there is a lot to see and do. Our next stop was Slidell just north east of New Orleans; we parked the coach there and flew to Fargo ND to attend the wedding of a niece. The wedding was fun and we were reminded about the reason we spend our winters in the south. The snow was about 3 ft deep and the morning we departed the temperature was -11 degrees. During our stay in Slidell we were able to get our Louisiana winery.
We then moved to Biloxi MS for a week. This is a fun area with a lot of good restaurants, including some from Diners, Drive-in’s and Dives, the Food Network Show. We always enjoy eating in these establishments when we can. The sea food in this area is some of the best we have been able to get.
We then moved on to South Alabama where we stayed for two weeks, visiting one of Julie’s Cousins who winter in Orange Beach. This is a fun area with a lot of things to do and places to visit. The history of this part of the gulf coast is rich in both military as well as the early settlers. We enjoy both the Alabama and Florida Panhandle areas where the beaches seem to stretch forever and the sand is white like sugar.
We then moved to Columbus GA where we prepared to attend the FMCA Convention in Perry Georgia. While in Columbus we were able to find wineries in both Alabama and Georgia. Both wineries had good wine for this region, that being according to our pallets. We then moved to Perry for the FMCA Convention, where we spent 6 nights dry camping along with the nearly 3000 other motor homes attending. This was an enjoyable gathering with great weather, and wonderful fellowship.
We are now in Brunswick Georgia preparing to start our trek north along the Atlantic Coast. Our travels have not taken us to the North East states and we plan on covering those in the coming months. We have enjoyed the south east Georgia coast visiting the Islands and taking in the rich history of the area. We will have to try to do better about posting our updates to this rambling narrative so you can keep track of our adventures.
