12/1/13 - Fairview state park

12/1/13 - Sunday

It's hard to believe we're already  in December - where does the time go?    I guess what they say about the older you get the quicker the days go by is true.    Since I worked as a school secretary for the past 15 years, my life (and vacations) have been based on the school calendar.   It's very strange to be able to travel in the fall, we've never really had that opportunity (except one memorable year in 2008 when we went on a bike tour of Tuscany in October  with the blessing of my incredibly nice boss, thanks Mary B.).

We left Abbeville, LA  around 10:00 this morning.   It was our quickest ever hitching-up,  it only took about an hour to pack up, close up, hitch-up and get on the road.    We saw frost on the ground as we drove east on I-10 towards Mandeville, LA.   The frost didn't  bother us because we knew temperatures were forecasted to be in the 60's today and into the 70's later in the week!

After  a relatively short drive of 150 miles we reached our December home in Fairview State Park.    This is a nice quiet park.  There are very few campers here and we have a  nice site with a fire ring, picnic table and grill - what more can anyone ask for?

Our home for the next four weeks
Since we will be here until December 29th and since we don't have a sewer hook-up we will be conserving water by taking showers at the bath houses.   Luckily for us, these  are the nicest, cleanest and biggest   showers I've ever seen at a campground.    Once we start working with Habitat  next week and I have to get up at 6:30 and go outside to walk to the shower I may not be as enthusiastic -we'll see.
