From Poche's Fish N Camp to Frog Hollow Campground/RV Park

Morning-54F (12C)
Afternoon-77F (25C)

I was awake at 6 a.m. but didn't get up till 6:30. Gordon was still asleep which is amazing for him! I missed my walk this morning using that time to make our lunches for the road. We were packed up and out of Poche's Fish N Camp at 9:10 a.m. It was 57F (14C) and partly sunny.

As we left Poche's I took another photo of our 'gator'. I was right, it's a log!

We had an uneventful journey and made it to our first stop of our northern trek shortly after 3 p.m., a distance of 340 miles. We are at Frog Hollow Campground/RV Park at Grenada, MS and will stay for two days. There's some weather coming in tomorrow so we'll wait it out here. The campground has free wifi and it appears to be pretty good. We had planned to use the aerial for TV but the only station we got was a snowy NBC so Gordon set up the TV satellite.

I took photos of Henderson Swamp as we were traveling on I-10. There's no real way to get to it by road other than the interstate.

We made it to Mississippi!

Beautiful red tea roses at the Mississippi Welcome Center

Lots of greens with a pretty sky

Many clumps of these red wildflowers along the road

Dogwood in bloom

The trip today was quite beautiful, from the marshes of Louisiana to the varying greens of the trees in Mississippi. The dogwood is also in bloom.

In reply to Diane's comment on yesterday's blog - the wood ducks were further along the road from the rookery but quite close. Lots of luck, hope you enjoy being there! The area is indeed a little gem. If you're taking your RV, Catfish Heaven campground is closest but we like Poche's Fish N Camp.

And to Donna who also commented, sorry haven't had a chance to check out the wildflower info that you gave me.

    Thanks Sandra. Hope you all have a safe trip. I told my kids that it's kind of crazy that we found out about Lake Martin by way of a couple from Canada! You and Gordon's photography have inspired me to get out and take some pictures.
