From yesterday's post, some folks have been asking where we are staying. It is the Paragon Casino RV Resort in Marksville, LA. They offer full hookups, fast Wifi, cable, a pool, a billiards room, a very clean laundromat, and free shuttle service to the casino.
Their regular rate is an unbelievably low $17.00 per night, but with our Passport America membership, we are totally taking advantage of them by paying only $8.50 per night, for our maximum allowed stay of 5 nights.
By the way, Passport America is only $44.00 per year, so a person can easily recoup their membership fee.
Don't ask us where the day went, it seems like we just finished our coffee time, and now here it is, evening already.
We did sleep in a little later than usual, even for us. Then I put some soft music on our CD player, and we enjoyed a nice conversation, while drinking our coffee in bed. The big discussion today, was whether or not we will make the trip to New Orleans.
When I told a fellow RV'er our plan to go to Nawlin's, he advised against it, saying there has been innocent people hurt in some of the turf wars going on. On the other hand, if we keep our senses alert, I am sure we will be just fine.
Since it is nearly three hours out of the way, plus three hours back, this equals a full tank of gas ( about $150.00 ). We are still chatting about it, but now it is over a glass of vino !!
Another first for us, was sleeping with the windows open last night. We fell asleep with a gentle cool breeze lulling us to sleep. Nice.
Today was the last of our hot days. We hit 80, but the next few days are going to cool down to the mid 60's. Believe it or not, we are ready for a cool down, because with the humidity, we have been a little too hot. I even had two showers today !!
We are freshly showered, and in our "comfy" clothes. We are looking forward to a movie and munchies, then off to bed. Maybe tomorrow we will be able to account for our day....LOL.
