A Little West

We’re just taking our time the last few days moving a little further west. There is no hurry. Besides Walmart there are other big box stores that permit overnight RV parking in their lots; some Bass Pro Shops ok it too. We always ask permission first and appreciate being able to stay for free and do shop in their stores. We watched the Olympic Winter Games on TV while we were staying there.

We did spend last night at a Walmart. Usually there is no problem when we do this, but last night was a noisy one. Too much traffic all night kept us from getting a good night’s sleep.

It looks like spring time here. Walmart’s garden center has tomato plants ready for purchase. Today was warmer than it has been in a while, getting up to around 70 degrees, and it was great to see the blue sky and sunshine.

Now we’re in Gulf Islands National Seashore – Davis Bayou Campground near the town of Ocean Springs, Mississippi. With Bernie’s National Senior Pass we can camp here for only $11/night and we have water and electricity. It’s a small campground that fills up quickly. They do not take reservations but we got here early and scored a good spot.

We did take the Jeep out for a drive around just to see what’s in the area. We drove out to Pascagoula to see what’s there. This is a ship building community and we could see some of that activity. It is Sunday so the streets were very quiet and parking lots empty. Then back home and watching more of the Olympics on TV.

    Back in the 70’s (before we met) Hubby worked at that shipyard – Ingalls. We were down in the area twice in the last two years and he showed me around. Getting discounts on campgrounds is always a nice thing!
