Dorothy on Henderson Lake near Breaux Bridge, LA







Our last adventure was spending most of a week with Jeanne and Ed who are from our hometown. [They have an Anniversary Edition MB]

It’s Sunday and we are in a most wonderful park, Tickfaw SP near Springfield, LA. This is a CG with great facilities. The sites are not too close together, the pads are paved and level. Each pad has a large deck with a picnic table. It’s less than 6 years old, so the bathhouse is in good condition. There is even free WiFi. Around 5:30 our LD friends arrived, so after they set up we had happy hour and then dinner. I had cooked spaghetti and they brought ice cream and cookies.

Monday we all paddled Lizard Creek to the Tickfaw River. This is a swamp, but it was a fun paddle.

There was a threat of rain the rest week. And some days, the threat was made good. Wednesday, we went into Baton Rouge, about an hour away and toured the state capitol built by Huey Long to be better than the national capitol. We also toured the old capitol building. Both were interesting to us. We had a fine dinner at Mike Anderson’s.

We got home Saturday, March 28. A short trip for us, ten weeks.
