We were off late in the day on the road. We settled in quickly and passed the time reading on our kindles while snuggled under our new sherpa blankets. We stopped in Perry, FL for the night and then hit the road for a long day of driving.
The weather was already quite cold. We enjoyed a leg stretch at a lovely welcome center in the Atchafalaya in Louisiana. This raccoon apparently was animated but it wasn’t working. It looked a little creepy waiving at us.
We made it to San Antonio and settled in quickly at our KOA. We ran out to get a new battery for the motorhome as the chassis battery apparently didn’t like us anymore. We arrived back in time to toss up our holiday decorations and get over to the club house for the campground holiday potluck. Everyone was so wonderful and the campground was great. We found out there was a holiday decorating contest so we made sure to put all the decorations out, in the pouring icy rain! We had a fun time at the potluck.Â One of the teen staff members dressed as “Twinkle Sparkles” the elf and passed out candy canes. We found out we won the decorating contest. Honestly I think we were the only ones that entered! We won a cool KOA mug and a jar of cookie mix!
Some family photos while we listened to a local band play. Ollie and Jolly found us safely on the road and are enjoying some time under the tiny tree in the motorhome. We didn’t do much else as this was just a resting spot on the road. We went to the movies and saw the new Star Wars movie and then hung out in the motorhome and relaxed as the weather was cold, grey and miserable.
