Covington Louisiana Farmer's Market with good friends.

Where are we today ?
 clic a pic to enlarge it
      Another cold one over night we were asked to leave a tap dripping so the water lines don't freeze, and will do that again tonight. 37F at 5 am and only got to 45F all day overcast. First walkabout at 6:30 was refreshing  and so quiet here just the ducks quacking always nice to hear. Then consumed more coffee and more computing stuff and another couple walkabouts We really enjoy this area right here in the campground.
nice nature trails around here
nice mist over the pond behind us 
our coach across the pond
        About 9:30 this morning our good friends Jim and Sharon dropped by to say hi again, fellow full-time rv'ers. They just check in to this park a few minutes ago. We have been meeting up with these guys for many years, from California, to Key West Florida and many places in between always fun to hook up again. They being from western Canada and us Eastern Canada. They asked if we had plans today and yes we were planning to check out the Covington Farmer's market this morning.

       So headed to to the Covington Farmer's Market  them driving to check it out every Wednesday 10 am till 2 pm. again it's been a while since were there.     Because it was so cold 45F not a lot of vendors there but we not far away and a nice drive. Apparently a lot more vendors on Saturday but we are going to another market then in Mandeville.
Covington Tail Head Water Tower
we bought a package of these shrimp rolls to take home
will try then maybe tomorrow
these look so tasty
these Tacos looked tasty
Jim and Sharon each got one
this band was playing they were good
but looked cold
           After here we stopped again at Acquistapace's just around the corner to pick up a couple of things and show them this wonderful grocery store.
how's this for a bottle of Brandy?
Jim says "Look at this will ya"
spirits, wine and beer from all over the world
so many varieties and prices
then I stopped by to sample more cheese
 and buy a small package 
       But I also picked up a Party pack of Abita Springs Beer. I do enjoy these different brews they have 6 of their beers 2 of each. We can enjoy at home.
a nice selection of brews here
          Back home by noon for lunch we finished of the rest of our chowder and gumbo, my this was such very tasty treat.
       We were given a Satsuma Orange last night and reminded us that they are now in season here and are amazing ! So juicy and tasty easy peal and mostly seedless.  Satsuma Oranges are wonderful we first tried them here in 2006 and when we see them always pick some up.
local Satsuma oh so juicy
        Then I took a cruise about the area for a bit and Abita Springs loving the atmosphere of this southern Louisiana town.
     We have seen a few Shot gun houses down there and below is a couple of pictures of these unique dwellings.

more original shotgun house
   Another walkabout here. Nice the laundry here now is state if the art!. You can download an app to your smart phone and pay for it, Now it that too cool? We don't need that yet but sure looks like the way of the future.
this looks quite interesting 
       Now at 3:30 over to Jim and Sharon's for Happy hour, inside of course much to cool to sit outside. Catch up some more, tell some stories and lies, flapping our gums.
      They have a very nice diesel pusher with no slides  and so much room inside, really love their coach over 20 years old and looks like new.
we being happy
Sharon being Sharon
even got me in the pic as well
Jim took it
lotsa room in this coach for sure
          About 5 pm we headed on home to fire up our Weber Q to grill a couple of Turkey burgers from home with onion and parsley that we love.
not long they are perfect,
English muffins warming in foil
sure did the trick and finished the potato salad too
      All in all was a wonderful day. And meeting up with friends again a real bonus.
      Hope y'all had a wonderful day and keeping warm wherever you are. Thanks for stopping by!

 Where have we been this Winter?


  1. I'm hoping the beer was a little cheaper than all the other bottles you were checking out!! Safe Travels.

    1. Yes Lorne much cheaper, makes you wonder who buys some of this stuff. You guys travel safe as well and enjoy this area.

  2. I can't even imagine spending that kind of money on liquor. Scary to think someone wound buy it and then actually drink it ahaha

    1. I feel the exact same way why you you even want to? I guess we work too hard for our money.

  3. I am surprised at the weather your getting there. Oh well makes me feel just a tad better of not having left Ontario here yet. Plan on pulling out on Saturday and very much looking forward of getting out of this freezing and snow. Your cold is still far better, than here.

    1. It will be getting warmer again starting today, and we are looking forward to it. Travel safe when you head out.

  4. Another cool Farmers Market. LOVE those shrimp rolls. That brandy? I don't think so!!!!

    1. It was nice and will be better on the weekend, The shrimp rolls will be enjoyed I am sure.

  5. Jim and Sharon's motorhome certainly doesn't look 20 years old! Very spacious. The 12 pack you bought looks interesting! That brandy!!! A person who can afford that makes way too much $$$.. The farmers market looks like fun, too bad the weather kept some away. Dinner looked awesome, gotta love turkey burgers Simple but delicious!

    1. Their coach has been well taken care of and was stored inside for many years. The 12 pack has some IPA's in it too.

  6. Another neat market that you have discovered. But who would pay for that brandy. Glad you you are having a good time with your friends. Love the lay out of their RV.

    1. It is a neat market that we enjoyed. Np to that brandy for sure.
      It has an amazing layout so much room and no slides.

    2. Thanks Contessa, no slides and we love it.


We love it when you take the time to drop us a line.
