RV Travels across the USA – Leaving Alabama and Heading to the Hospitality State to meet our Friends
We just thought our 32nd Travel Day from Holt, Florida, to Theodore, Alabama was short.
But our route from Theodore, Alabama to Biloxi, Mississippi was even shorter.
On Travel Day # 34 on a road trip adventure across the USA, we spent less than 2 hours in the dually.

Travel Day # 34
In less than 20 miles, we had crossed the Alabama-Mississippi state line.
And we gave a celebratory Honk!
For miles and miles,
we traveled across a lengthy bridge
over the Pascagoula River and admired its inlets and bayous.
Within 20 miles of the campground,
the Mississippi Sound of the Gulf of Mexico came into view.
When we saw water, we got excited.
Not only were Belle and Buddy excited to spend a week at the beach,
but they were also excited to spend some time playing on the beach with friends.
The Biloxi Lighthouse welcomed us into the city.
the Biloxi Lighthouse is the only lighthouse in the world which is located on a four-lane highway.
Since we planned to spend spring break at the beach with friends, Gary and I decided to splurge and go over our campground budget.
We chose an expensive campground on Beach Boulevard, so we could have walking access to the beach.
The nightly rate was quite expensive (for us), but the weekly rate was more economical.
Even though our friends were only staying with us three days, Gary and I decided to call Cajun RV Park our temporary home for a week.
When we arrived at Cajun RV Park,
the sign directed us to the back of the campground where the office was located.
Gary went into the office to register while the rest of us waited in the dually for his return.
Some of us don’t wait patiently. And one of us whined the entire time.
Preferring her pack together,
Fannie whined and whimpered until Gary returned.
As we waited,
I couldn’t help but notice how close the RVs were parked to one another.
We had just left a campground in Alabama where we were crammed in like sardines.
Planning to spend an entire week at this campground,
I was hoping for more space between our home on wheels and our neighbor’s RV.
Gary returned with a campground map and our assigned site.
We drove back to the entrance of the campground.
(We later discovered that this campground was once a drive-in theater.)
We found parking pad 128 and Gary pulled into our assigned spot.
Since we were assigned a big-rig friendly pull-thru,
we had a driveway (and not an RV) in front of us and behind us.
And the parking pad we were assigned was also at the end of a row.
I was relieved to see that we wouldn’t be living like sardines for the week.
I don’t like to live close to my neighbors but Gary doesn’t like to park or live near trees.
At Cajun RV Park, our assigned spot was between two trees.
When Gary sees tree branches touching our home on wheels,
he immediately thinks scratched paint.
Whereas I hear and enjoy the swaying of branches
and sense protection when our home on wheels is parked under a tree.
is a difficult task.
But my Knight completed this task with ease.
While Gary and Buddy worked on outside-duty chores, Belle and I had inside-duty that day.
Inside-duty also includes chores outside like:
arranging the picnic table, setting out the rug, and finding a safe place to tie-up Fannie.
As Belle and I worked, I often found her staring off into the distance. Because in the distance . . .
she could see sand and water.
After set-up chores were complete and Gary and I made a quick run to the grocery store,
our family walked across Beach Boulevard for our first walk on the beaches in Biloxi.
Cajun RV Park proved to be the perfect place for us to park our big rig.
