We had met Paula and Jerry when we were staying at Hacienda Contreras near Mazamitla in Mexico two years ago. Coincidentally, they live in Nova Scotia very close to our daughter Lindsey and son-in-law Justin.
They sent us a note saying we could dry camp somewhere on the property for $10, or have a full hook up site near them for $16, which is the same price they are paying under the Passport America RV park plan.
So we headed for Poche’s Fish n Camp near Breaux Bridge, Louisiana.
We stayed off the Interstate and took all back roads. We did 131 miles (210 kms) and it took just over 3 hours. The skies did clear up and it turned into a decent day.
Starting to be some green on the trees!
Arrived at Poche’s about 2:00pm and we were given a site across from Paula and Jerry. We were charged only $15, and we found out later the owner has a little game going with Paula and Jerry who have been here for about two weeks. She figured she would annoy them for fun and charge us less than what they were paying! We like those games!
Growing rice and crawdads!
So we visited with them for the afternoon, and then I put together our new Weber Q100 barbeque. Probably the best portable bbq we’ve ever owned. Only used it this one time so far, but first impressions say I’m very impressed. Now just have to figure out where to store it!

Had a campfire in the evening, and talked about RV’ing in Mexico. Paula and Jerry didn’t go this year because they did the Florida Keys instead, but they can’t wait to return next year.
We still have to do laundry, and they have some good inexpensive machines here so we’ll do that in the morning before we leave. Then, we’re headed for the Biloxi, Mississippi area where we’ll find another casino to park at.
