Okatibbee Water Park, Meridian MS


Well, we managed to escape Red Bay on Thursday with little additional damage done to our pocketbook Smile  The windshield drapes arrived Tuesday and Chris Berry delivered and installed our end tables on Wednesday. That meant we were least for this visit. We'll probably be back sometime in the future. I would not hesitate to recommend any of the people we had dealings with while we were there!

Thursday morning, we pulled out and drove about 200 miles south to Okatibbee Water Park in Meridian MS. This is a Mississippi State Park that also takes Passport America. What a deal! We really like the park. It's geared more for smaller rigs, but there are a few sites that can handle a big rig. It takes a little maneuvering but doable. The first site we wiggled our way into had a problem at the power pedestal, so we had to move to another. It was just as well, as that site had hardly no cell signal at all. The new site was in the next loop, on the water and cell signal improved by several bars. Because we use a cellular air card and router for our internet, we were quite happy with the new site and increase in signal.

This is a really nice park and "our cup of tea". Nicely wooded without being totally covered, lots of space between sites, full hook ups with 50 amp service and being on the water is a plus for us.

Yesterday (Friday) kept us busy. While I made a Walmart run, Rick took care of some of his outdoor projects. Then we took off together for the afternoon. The Jeep was due for an oil change and there was a furniture store in Meridian that we wanted to check out. We were still looking for a couple La-Z-Boys and we finally got lucky. We found a size that would work in a color that we liked and they just happened to have 2 in stock Smile Best of all, they'll deliver, right to our site here in the campground, this morning Smile How cool is that?

Later on, while Rick was grilling brats for dinner, I walked closer to the water to try to get a shot of the sunset. I'm not very good at it yet, but I intend to practice a lot all over the country Smile You'll just have to humor me here, cuz I'm going to keep posting them Smile
