We were at Lake Bistineau State Park Monday night. It is a beautiful Louisiana State Park near Shreveport, Louisiana. Cost is $18.00 a night or $20.00 a night with a deck!

This park is filled with moss covered Cypress trees and typical Louisiana swamps.

We were the only ones in the park and enjoyed it very much. The waning moon, rose after dark and hung over the Cypress trees highlighting the hanging moss, giving the woods  a spooky look.  We were serenaded  by Owls hooting in the distance.

The ranger told me, when I checked in, that in the Bathhouse there were washers and dryers that we were welcome to use for free! We decided, to use the washers and dryers, after we spent the afternoon hiking around. By this time, clouds had moved in and it was “pitch” – can’t see your hand in front of your face – dark!

We travel with a car guard on our car and decided to drive the half-block to the Bathhouse leaving the car guard on the car. Whoa, big mistake!

Okay, Trip Two “lets use a flash light to shine on the road in front of the car”. Not as bad as Trip One, but too much dark, so little light!

I can’t believe, my overly cautious husband did this!

After Trip Two, conversation goes as follows:

Howard – “lets take the car guard off”

Sheila, “oh this is fun, want me to walk in front of the car with the flash light”

Trip Three – Howard won. We took the time to remove the car guard from the car; this trip we could see the road, but it was not nearly as much fun! We could also see Raccoons and feral cats.

It turned out to be a fun way to do some laundry! However, afterwards I spent too much time thinking about the feral cats.
