Abita Springs, Louisiana High 66 Low 46
We left Mississippi fairly early this morning after a cool night. We drove for about 2 hours with a stop at the Louisiana Welcome Center. We got to the RV Park at about noon. This is the earliest we have ever been to a RV Park. The information on the Park said check in was 4 PM, so I thought I better call, and was told to come in anytime.
We are at the Abita Springs RV Resort. It seems to be a nicer Park than some we have stayed at in the last while. We will be here three nights. This Park has a nice big Club House with quite a few activities going on each day.
Since we got here so early, we decided to go see a couple of quilt stores that are nearby. The first had some quilts designed by a local quilt designer. As it turned out, she was at the store and we got to meet her. Her name is Cherry Guidry. I haven’t looked up her website but we the name of her book Celebrate the Seasons. They seemed to have the same basic design, but were a little different for whatever the season.
Cindy found some fall fabric to buy, and as we were leaving, there was a case with hand embroidery floss that was free. The cashier said that it was always nice to get free stuff. I joked with her that it really wasn't free as we had spent $100 with them. She told us to help ourselves. Cindy got a good assortment of colors. This store was having a birthday sale and is a very large store.
In the first store there were different reasons to buy material posted. We didn't find them all, but the ones we did find were funny.
|Remember, this is Louisiana!|
|This would work in Utah.|
The second store was more of a sewing machine store, but outside they had some selves with free buttons and free 8 inch zippers. Again we got a good assortment of colors of buttons and zippers. It was nice to find some free notions at 2 different stores.
Thanks for visiting.
