Day 91 New Orleans Plantations

on our first full day in New Orleans, we visited two plantations on River Road. The St Joseph plantation and the Laura plantation. Then dinner at Mothers of New Orleans and a walk through Bourbon Street where Rob tried Absinthe for the first time.

Day 85 – Dolphin Connection dolphin tour

We looked for a reputable dolphin tour in the Portland area and came across The Dolphin Connection which sails out of Ingleside. Irv and Sonja have worked with the same families of dolphins for over 16 years and know them by name, so we figured they would be good tour guides.

Day 82 – Oysterfest in Fulton, Texas

Our entire stay in Texas, revolved around the Fulton Oysterfest. When Dar found out it was going to be held a week after we had scheduled to move on to New Orleans, we quickly changed our plans and added another week to our stay at Sea Breeze. Dar is crazy about seafood and loves her raw oysters, where Rob doesn’t really care for them. Funny enough, we got on local Corpus Christi television too after being filmed by the Caller Times. This is our experience of the Oysterfest in Fulton.

Day 79 – Taking the RV to the Beach

Rob wanted to allow his cats to experience the ocean, so we took the ferry to Port Aransas and then parked the RV on the beach. Part of the trip was to do a photo shoot for an RV magazine we had written an article for about first time RVing so we wanted the shots to be spectacular. Then we enjoyed a nice evening meal at Fishermans Wharf complete with sunset over the marina photos.
