We're still at the A+ Motel and Campground in Sulpher, LA, Saturday, August, 31 through Monday morning, September 2. Yesterday (Friday) at the beach was such a success the kids all wanted to go again. We chose to go at low tide this time, as supposedly, low tide is the best time for shelling. We just hung around the campground and visited the pond and the fish cleaning station again and the kids and I went back to the pool. We had a late lunch/early supper of marinated chicken on the grill and sliced potatoes in foil on the grill. It was wonderful, Mr. C is a great camping cook. After eating and cleaning up, we headed for the beach.
This big partial shell has the skeleton of a dead coral colony on and inside it. I think I'll boil it to be sure it's "clean" and then put it in my reef tank. It should be beautiful covered in coralline algae.
Sunday, our last full day in Louisiana, B & M picked up donuts and kolaches for breakfast and then we went out crabbing.

Mr. C, the kids and I all watched a movie, another animated one, The Dragon Hunters. It was kind of odd animation, almost like caricatures, but the story was a cute one and well played out. About halfway through the movie B and M came back and regaled us with the "right way to catch crabs", LOL. They went to a place that the land met the water, rather than off a dock. Then when the crab grabbed the chicken you could kind of tease him into following the chicken right up to the shore and then scoop him up with a net and you have yourself a crab. They caught several and had fun playing with a smaller one. Well, now I know how to do it some other day.
We ended the evening with s'mores again, which you can tell J obviously enjoyed.
B and family headed home and Mr. C and I headed for Baton Rouge, LA for the night and then on Gulf Shores, AL for the next 2 weeks.
In Baton Rouge, we stayed at a fairly nice, but older run down KOA. It was easy in and out, was a fairly large campground, and they had a VERY nice looking pool. There was a Golden Corral in Baton Rouge, so we had dinner there and then hit Walmart for groceries and some other things we wanted.

Hey, I'm almost caught up, tomorrow I'll give an update on our Gulf State Park adventures. Until then, smiles, Sue C
