We spent three nights at one of our favorite camp grounds in the US, Fontainebleau State Park. The park costs $18 a night for a paved drive, Elect/Water hook ups and sits on the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain. It’s about a 40 minute drive from the park to downtown New Orleans. Perfect for a day trip in to the French Quarter for Beignets and music and back out to the quiet of the beach.

Take Me Back to New Orleans.
Outtakes from the beach:
I had a very strong impression come over me in December that we were meant to go to New Orleans. I told Craig and he was keen to give it a go. We tried knocking on all sorts of doors and none opened. And yet, the impression just kept getting stronger. As we began to plot our our routing we worked it in, not knowing the purpose but waiting and planning. As it turns out the Big Easy, was just that for us, meaning a time of rest and relaxation.
New Orleans for rest you say, and after ten days in this swamp land called the bayou, we feel ready for another round of service and performance.
Here is a preview of some of the highlights.
