#tbt #nofilter #noedit The day I had to say goodbye. I’m missing her hardcore lately. Maybe because it’s been 2 weeks since I’ve had a cat to cuddle and I’m a cat person more than anything. But mostly because Hoshi is the best cat ever and I’m fighting a constant battle of guilt over letting her go when she made it quite clear that she loved me more than anyone else and those I left her with made it clear they didn’t love her.
Tonight we park our rig at this glorious state park near Shreveport, LA. This is our last stop before a month in TX tomorrow. Again, a whole campground to ourselves. A dock leading out into this glorious swamp. All the trees have Spanish moss and there are alligators! I’m super giddy about the beauty of this place. (at Lake Bistineau State Park)
Playing catch up. Last night we stopped for the night in Vicksburg, MS on the Mississippi River. We went downtown for a date (left Katja in the rig) and walked by this giant boat loading ramp into the river where we met sweet Grady and Linda. A middle aged super happy couple who had just pulled their new used pontoon boat out of the water. They invited us on and shared their beer, cheese, and crackers with us while they told us some history around river and some things to check out on our westward journey (they travel via RV as well). They gave us a hug upon departure and sent and email this morning to check in. We keep meeting the kindest people.
We had an entire campground to ourselves last night and this morning on Marathon Lake (more like a 50 acre pond) in the Bienville National Forest in Mississippi. It was gorgeous and much needed. Katja was beside herself with joy over all the swimming she got to do. Many thanks to Ed Brown who manages the place for the kind wishes and great Mississippi advice. Off to a night on the Mississippi River now…
