This will be our home for the next 7 nights before heading to Naval Station Pensacola, home of the Blue Angels.
The drive from Beaumont was 325 miles on IH 10, IH 12 and again on IH 10. I mentioned this because it is better to take the IH12 at Baton Rouge rather than go thru New Orleans traffic. The drive is OK, but there is only a rest stop between Texas and Mississippi at exit 121. A long 270 mile trip. The drive takes you over the Atchafalya Swamp..eerie. Lots of anglers...guess that is the way of life here. Don't know how anyone could live in the swamp or fish those waters. Full of alligators and snakes.
Shields RV Park is located on the Gulfport Naval Construction Battalion Base. Very nice sites with full hookups. We are on site 39..$120 for the week. We stayed here Dec 2011 over Christmas.

During the night we got a huge, torrential thunderstorm. Even Destiny got nervous and took refuge below our bed.
