I checked the weather forecast and noticed that we were going to have a couple of days with low temps so decided to make reservations at the State Park in Grand Isle.  The first night was wonderfully cold.  I woke during the night to see my little doggies cuddled together in their bed so placed a cover over them.  Checked the temp and it was 55 degrees inside the RV.  I love the cold and won't sleep with the propane heater on but I was concerned about my little pups.  

Once the sun came up it got nice and cozy inside.  The following day was just right but the mosquitoes were back in the campground and made it impossible to sit outside so I decided to head back to the house and not stay the third day as planned.   Back home now and the temps are getting higher and the A/C is running again.  Not sure if I'll be able to do any further camping till after summer.  I hate the heat.

We enjoyed our rides on the beach and took a lot of them.

Pretty large cut into the beach from the last series of thunderstorms that came through here recently.

Xi Shi heading for the water as usual.

Rode over to the pier and we set up in our favorite spot and I read my Coastal Living magazine and the dogs enjoyed walking off leash. 

Right after this photo was taken people started arriving.  Some to fish and some to watch the dolphins.  Met some folks from New York who were interested in the local culture.  We talked for a long time.

Did some  redecorating in the RV.  
Changed the blue bedspreads to white.   Also removed the electric fireplace.  The added space was really nice.  I opened the top drawer and placed my laptop on it.

Changed the white rugs to blue.  For some reason these changes makes the space look larger... to me anyway.

After breakfast this morning I rode my little doggies out to the beach.  The kids were back in school after having a day off due to flooding so the beach was nearly empty... just the way I like it.  There were workmen grading the area and it is almost back to normal.

This is a small section of beach that is on the far left of the entrance.  I had never been on it before.

The bike is parked on the cement walkway which had not been graded yet and was covered in sand.

Then we went to my favorite part of the park.

The doggies love sitting up on the picnic table.

My precious Cha Bu Khan.

Sweet Xi Shi Quan.

This area is to the extreme right of the beach entrance.  I had never been there before.  The beach runs out and there is only grass and marsh.

After all that exploring the dogs took a nap while I enjoyed listening to the waves lapping the shore.

On our way back to the RV we stopped to visit this awesome Great Pyrenees.   WOW... what a dog.  He is 9 years old and weighs 165 pounds.  Very friendly.  Beautiful hair.  He was adopted from the pound as a baby.

I can't imagine what the cost of dog food is for the family.

Great day at the beach.  I'm a happy camper tonight.

At Fontainebleau State Park in Mandeville, Louisiana tonight.  I'm not far from where all the flooding has taken place.  My site has standing water and the beach is pretty torn up by the storm.  Won't be staying my planned 3 days.  I just can't catch a break.  Every time I plan to go camping the weather ruins it for me.  I don't have much longer before the heat will make it unbearable to enjoy my RV.

A pull through site.

The beach is pretty torn up by the storm.

Rode my bike around the park and walked the doggies.  Cooked supper and am enjoying a movie.
