Day 11: Raining and Reading

Monday Day 11:

It rained and rained all day and into the night. We took a long drive north to Alexandria and around mostly through pine and hardwood swamp/forests. Came back to the camper in the afternoon, turned on the heater and we read while the rain pounded on the canvas roof. Very relaxing!

We see lots of robins here, especially after the rains. The rice and crawfish fields have lots of white egrets and ducks. Many of the same birds you see in the spring in WI/MN are here now. The cardinals are singing each morning and are thick too.

The campers who moved in for the weekend all left and we are again on our own in the park. I think we will move on tomorrow too--find another place to explore. Maybe down to the ocean--about 60 miles south.
