Time for a little update. We’ve been at Fairview-Riverside State Park in Louisiana for the last several days. It’s been cold and wet so we haven’t been out much. On Fat Tuesday we watched the New Orleans Mardi Gras parades on TV in the comfort of our RV home. The rain kept the crowds away, but that did not stop the parades.
Now we are in Hammond. It’s still cool and there’s not a lot to see here, we’re just waiting for better weather. Now that Mardi Gras is over it’s crawfish season. There’s a market near us that sells hot boiled crawfish so we bought some and brought them home to eat. Messy, but they were tasty. The cold weather makes the crawfish harder to catch and drives the price up. What we bought today was $4.99/lb. But I have no idea if that was a high price or not, I have nothing to compare it to. We’re crawfish newbies.
Spring is in the air. Today was a littler drier and warmer than it has been for a while. The sun came out and we saw blue sky. The trees are budding out. I spotted this tree beginning to bloom. Flowering crab? Or a cherry? I’m not sure. It won’t be long now before we start making plans to go north.
