Catching up!

We have been having fun and enjoying life and have not found the time to share our adventures...HA! We will try to stay up to date from now on. We thought we might be heading to CA as our grandson was in the hospital with autoimmune hepatitis. he seems to be doing well so will continue our adventure.

Started our adventure at Calico Ghost Town....but it was closed due to a water main break. Went to Betty Sue's diner for a good burger and shake instead! Then on to Las Vegas for a trade show where we met up with Dan's sister, Jeana and his niece Jenn. Explored Red rock area but weather was not to cooperative....strong winds.

Spent a great weekend in Primm, NV with good friends that were racing. Left Las Vegas and stayed in Wikiup at a small hole in the wall RV Park but nice owners and good BBQ. Then.....a blowout just outside of Wilcox, AZ.

LBJ Ranch @ Johnson City, TX and the Strahmann's Pecan grove and factory outside of Las Cruces, NM ...yummy ice cream.

Got to Betty's just in time for crawfish dinner.

Arrived in Abbeville and everything was blooming , even the seafood...HA!

Wildlife along the Louisiana Gulf

Fun and music @ Betty's

More fun and friends at Betty's

Natchez, MS Mammy's cupboard, the NOT politically correct cafe. Natchez was a beautiful town on the Mississippi River. it kind of reminded us of a smaller Savannah, Georgia

Vicksburg, MS The National Military Park...beautiful.

Followed the Blues Highway north through Mississippi. Went to the Blues museum and ate good BBQ at Abe's. Dan was happy to stand at the crossroads.

Did the Azalea-Dogwood Festival in Charleston, Missouri. Ate at Lambert's in Sikeston where they throw the homemade rolls to you. The food was incredible.

Southern Illinois is beautiful...can't wait to go back and spend more time.

Beautiful scenery along the wine trail in Southern Illinois. We stocked up on wine. Dan's favorite was the apple wine!

Our new bat!

Had a great time seeing how the Louisville sluggers are made.

Louisville, Ky
