On a sadder note earlier that morning I had read about the death of a blogger’s husband, Sherry of In the Direction of Our Dreams had posted about David’s passing. He fought a courageous battle with cancer, never stopped smiling and he lived life to the fullest. Sherry’s blog laid the groundwork for some of my choices of FL state parks, I will miss reading her posts and offer up my condolences and prayers in this devastating trying time. David’s passing just reiterates why we started following our dream as early as we could.
While we were an hour later getting off the rest of our traveling that day were uneventful. After a bouncy ride on LA roads, 190 miles and 3.5 hours later we were pulling into Poche’s RV Park and Fish N Camp. We’ve been here before and this visit was all about the crawfish, Dave needed his fix.

So of course Dave had to have crawfish for his first dinner here, Cajun Claws was recommended but he can’t recommend them. They were way too salty, so much so that he couldn’t enjoy the head fat he usually does.

Friday was a cold windy day, but we braved it to get out to walk around the pond before we headed out for some groceries. While at the grocery store we received news that our friend from TX battling stomach cancer had found out it’s Stage 4, inoperable. Needless to say that has put us into a funk and trying to figure out what we could do to help, unfortunately going back isn’t an option so we’ll have to be a sounding board support for them whenever they need it. The day ended on a good note with a great hour long phone call with friends from our days in VT, can't wait to see them in OBX.
Saturday we headed to a local farmers market, do you know there’s not much there you can buy when you are on a low carb diet. Tried baking some cookies and brownies with Stevia, couldn’t stand the taste so I’ll just wait till we go back to a regular diet to enjoy sweets again. Here at Poche’s there are several ponds with walking around them, a couple of different walks around them and we’ve got our steps in for the day. We ended the day with Dave trying a different crawfish boiler, The Seafood Boiler was a great find, he certainly enjoyed his crawfish this time.
To end the day we enjoyed a phone call with our son David whose birthday it was. Happy Birthday David!!!
We are off to Buccaneer State Park in Waveland MS in the morning, another repeat park for us.
Until next time…
