It’s been that way for the last three weeks…something going on every day….AND night.  The happy hours start at 4:30 and last for three hours or till 11.  Most things are impromptu or decided the night before.  It is amazing!!! We love this place….

This blog post is getting toooo long so I’ll close it off for now. But do know there is something going on every single day and I just can’t make a post for each activity, but I think you get an idea of how much fun you can have at Betty’s RV Park in Abbeville, Louisiana.

Remember, you are loved.


  1. Betty sounds like one great lady! Glad you and others are having such a great time. Boy, that food made me hungry!

  2. Gosh, you guys are having way too much FUN! Love reading what you are doing. Keep up the posts! Hugs!

  3. It has been great. Sad you have to leave early.

    Howdy B&J,
    Yeah, way toooooo much fun, but I'm glad; it's great to see Jim laff like that!!! Y'all are going to have to go chop wood & clean up the campgrounds to drop a few ounces, after all of that GOOD EATING!!! I'm sure glad the gators didn't get y'all, but did you get to eat any gator-meat?? Thank you, for all of the pics and text... I really don't like crowds, even at a party... Joyce says I'm anti-social, but when I go somewhere I usually have a good time; I just don't go much...

    Remember y'all are too, also.....

    1. We've had alligator before and don't like it...too tough. We need to flush out our liver and lose some weight after being here for three weeks. We're eating out for lunch most every day as we are out and about seeing and doing every day. Need to get back top eating salads again.

  5. So jealous, I want to visit Cajun country as well! What type of music was Judy Bailey playing? Cajun? Zydeco? Country? I want to be there right now, it's cold and snowy up North! love your posts!

    1. Judy sings country which is refreshing from all the Cajun and Zydeco music we immerse ourselves in.

  6. I agree! You two are having way too much fun!! Wait! No such thing! Looks like you're having a total BLAST! Good for you! We definitely need to make it to Betty's sometime!!

  7. Sounds like the absolute perfect place to be for you and Jim! It all sounds & looks amazing.....and delicious!! Very Happy for you.
    Sending Hugs, J&C
