The last few days....

Moss Point,  MS

Not having blogged for a few, this is what we've done.

Spent time "just being" at A+ RV Park in Sulphur, LA.   We did go to Houston last Friday night and visited with daughter Djuana and her family.   Came back to campground on Saturday night.  Nice visit.

On Sunday we went to church and later in the day to Len's brother and sis-in-laws (Royce and Susie) for a yard party.  One of Len's sisters was there and his 4 brothers.  Also some nieces and nephews and relatives of Susie.

Three of Len's brothers and a sister-in-law:

Another sister-in-law and a grand niece:

Sister Sissy and her daughter Maggie.  In the background in the purple, sister-in-law Susie.

On Monday we had dinner at our friends Diana and Teaux's house.  Diana always puts on quite the spread.

It's been great visiting with our southern family and friends for the last 3+ weeks.  But time to move on.

This morning we left Sulphur at 8:30 and drove the 313 miles to Moss Point, MS arriving at 2:15.   I insisted that we stop twice for Leonard to walk around.   No more blood clots please!

First stop was at the Atchafalaya Basin  rest area on I10 in Louisiana.

Passing through Baton Rouge, the State Capital building.

Next stop was at the Mississippi Welcome Center where they have hot coffee for those who stop there.

Only being here in Moss Point for two nights, we are staying at Caswell Springs United Methodist church where we did a NOMADS project last year.    We got set up and then decided to get some BBQ.

When we were here last year, blogger Judy was volunteering at the Mississippi Sand hill Crane NWR.   We toured the refuge and she recommended The Shed.  Our group took her up on her suggestion and ate there. The very next night the place burned to the ground.    They re-opened only a week later for BBQ.   I didn't think I wanted any as it would probably be REALLY well done.

So today back we went.   The place looks little like it did except it is still quite unique.  Should it burn again tomorrow, I promise never to return.

Don't expect anything fancy.   The floor is stones.   The windows are almost none existent. The seating is rugged.  But the food is great.   I had the regular combo of two meats and two sides.  I chose pulled pork and brisket.  For sides I had sweet potato casserole and collards.   Len also had the pulled pork and brisket but the larger order.  He choose potato salad and beans.  The meals come with sliced onion, pickles and two large rolls.  We have enough brisket left for sandwiches later.

After eating we surprised our friends Gaye and Mac.  They did not expect us until tomorrow.   After a short visit we've returned to our "home" with plans to spend more time with them tomorrow.

Life is good!

Yep, The Shed is something else. I liked the sweet potato casserole too. :)

The Shed sounds, and looks, like an interesting place to eat.
