I prefer to post this photo I took just before leaving Florida. It will be quite awhile before we see flowers blooming in Maine. But it's been a great trip!

|Staying way south in Bayou Country|
After leaving Austin we headed east through Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. Wanting to avoid the unusual cold and snow in the northern part of these states, we kept as far south as possible. That meant traveling along the gulf coast. It seems our weather luck was all at the start of this trip, for now we have overcast, rain, and sometimes windy conditions. Then we found Ho-Hum RV Park in Carrabelle, Florida (panhandle). They had one spot left! It was so windy that evening, the bark was being blown off the Loblolly pine tree next to us, scaring us with the thuds. It didn't help any that the manager said they have a lot of bear activity here!

We rolled into town February 17 for Bonnie's QuiltCon adventure. That's where today's modern quilters convene to show, view, learn, and generally swoon over everything modern quilt related. More info at The Modern Quilt Guild website. www.themodernquiltquild.com
Below is the 2015 Best in Show "i Quilt" made by Kathy York of Austin. Nice job, Kathy!

It's my impression that Mardi Gras is celebrated along the Gulf Coast all through February. Here is one doorway in the small town of Breaux Bridge, Louisiana. I was impressed! You will also see Mardi Gras trees (like a Christmas tree, only decorated for Mardi Gras). And, of course, beads. Lots of beads. And, parades. Lots of parades. It's a festive time of extreme partying before Lent. And, New Orleans embraces the partying spirit all year long, but especially now!

We made it to Louisiana and the Big Easy. We are staying in an RV Reaort within walking distance of the French Quarter. What a crazy place. Oh, but the FOOD! I'm a fan. The weather has been kind to us. We chose a good winter to leave Maine for a couple of months.

Meanwhile, back in Maine, our son checked on our condo and sent this picture of the patio view out our back slider. Um. I'm glad we are here!
