April – St. Bernard State Park

4/1 Happy April Fools Day!!! This month is starting off with an educational trip to the Jean Lafitte National Historical Park. It was extremely interesting to learn about how the land was acquired and who was fighting who! The ranger was very animated so it made the story fun and easy to listen.

Plaques all around the battlefield telling the story of the battlefield.

Southern home on the property… beautiful

David bought me a National Park Passport.

4/5 It’s official I now have my own website….. RVingwithLinda.com I am really excited!!!

4/6 The last parade for the season and for us too! On the 16th I will be flying north to New Hampshire to babysit my grandkids! I can’t wait to see everyone!

They paint all the electrical boxes.
Hmmm.. Is Yoda Irish or Italian??

This is all the food that David and I caught!! 7 cabbages lbs of onions, carrots, potatoes and fruit. Oh yes odd little things too!! We are taking some and giving the rest to some our new friends here at St. Bernard state park.

4/5 I have had a blog since the beginning of this adventure started in June of 2018. I decided to get my own website. So on Friday I officially got my website: RVingwithLinda.com I am so excited and was not aware what it entails. But like this whole journey I took a leap of faith.

4/9 I intergrated 4-5 different social media sites. I am now trying to get my head wrapped around wordpress .com or .org self hosting. Phew! BTW it took me 6 hours to set up my sites. SMH!!

4/11 Well the best plans of mice and men…grrr. We made plans to go to the French Quarters festival that started at 11am. We did leave until 11:45am so as it goes we circled the French quarters for an hour an a half. I am now growling and pulling out my hair. My husband and found a public parking place finally. There was this restaurant The Barcardi on the corner so we went for a drink, I had a bloody Mary delicious! David had some sort of tropical drink. The pork nachos were just ok so after we left. We then walked up and down Toulouse st. there are alot of restaurants and bars but they only open at 4pm. And it was about 2:30 PM.

We headed to find some “real” food. We ended up at Seithers ..yummmy! Final called it a day!!

Crawfish, crab, shrimp, catfish and oysters!
Crawfish towers!

4/12 OMG Today going into the festival an hour earlier made such a big difference !!

4/15 Well this is it my last day here at St. Bernard state park. The other campground host offered to show us around. It was really a wonderful day!! We started going to the warehouse where they sell all the Mardi Gras items for the parade. Beads, stuff toys, footballs etc. It was huge they also had items you could dress up with masks, wigs and different costumes. Then we went to Katie’s for lunch. We headed to the distillery on the way we stopped at the Kwere of Thoth Den where they store the floats till next year. They also have next year’s plans and start white washing the floats to be repainted. It was really cool!!
