Sunday – March 17, 2013
We spent a restful night in the RV parking lot at the Boomtown Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi. We headed over to the casino for breakfast at 6:30 a.m. There were a few cars in the parking lot and once inside the casino it was like a ghost town compared to the mass of people there the night before. There were a few people working the slot machines and one woman gambling at one of the gaming tables.
The buffet did not open until 11:00 a.m. so we headed over to the 24-hour grill. They had an excellent breakfast menu posted. I ordered two scrambled eggs, with two sausage patties and whole wheat toast. Sharon ordered the pancakes with two sausage patties. We both ordered decaffeinated coffee. We ordered our breakfast to go so we could enjoy it in the comfort of our trailer. The breakfast was delicious and we were now fortified to continue on our journey.
We departed the casino at 8:05 a.m. Our destination is the St. Bernard State Park in Braithwaite, Louisiana. This park is conveniently located 19 miles from New Orleans. We arrived there at 11:00 a.m. Since it is Sunday, the park was still partially filled with weekend campers. However, there were four campsites available; we selected site #32 and got settled in. We had stayed at this campground in late December 2012, and were told at the time that this campground never gets filled up. We will spend three nights here on this visit.
There are 51 campsites at this state park, with electric and water hookups at each site. There is one restroom facility with flush toilets and hot water showers. The restroom facility also contains two washers and two dryers in a separate part of the building. The washers and dryers cost $1.00 each. There is free WiFi available throughout the campground, but it was being repaired due to damage from hurricane Isaac in 2012.
We spent the rest of the day just relaxing under a sunny sky with the temperature in the mid-70’s.
Camping Fee: $22.00 the first night, $16.00 for each additional night.
Total miles traveled: 98
Tomorrow another adventure begins.
