Yesterday we stayed at Buccaneer State Park in Waveland, Mississippi. Quite an interesting State Park Campground that isn't typical at all. It was recently rebuilt after being destroyed by Hurricane Katrina and this campground has a water park as well as a wave pool and is directly on the Gulf of Mexico. It appears most of the 200+ campsites have full hookups too.
The other interesting fact about this campground is it is built on the site for the confederate command forces during the civil war during the battle of New Orleans. And it's also the site of Andrew Jackson's homestead where he lived after the war.
We practically had the campground to ourselves and the dozen or so campers staying here are not to be seen. We were guessing that they're probably at the local casinos making their fortunes. During the night we had some pretty good thunderstorms come through. Looking at the positive, the heavy rain washed off most of the love bugs while we slept.
It was a long day today and we put in quite a few miles and made it into Texas. Roads in Louisiana were pretty beat up but the real fun started when we felt the excitement of driving through Houston during rush hour traffic. It was without a doubt the longest traffic jam I have ever been in through my entire life. The 12 lane road was backed up for 50 miles through the city. I don't know how anyone in Houston could possibly live in this town. I'm just glad we opted to fight our way through the city and camp on the western side so tomorrow will be clear sailing. The traffic jam is what effected our double mojito night.
We're in a private RV park tonight. Very neat and quiet. Good place for drinking Mojitos and relaxing.
