Shopping Day in Gulfport, MS, Nov 29, 2011

Well what can I say, we shopped until we dropped today.  The Southern Oaks Mobile Park is right in the middle of all kinds of shopping.  Sam’s Club, Wal-mart, Petsmart, Bed Bath and Beyond, Michaels, and many many more.

At Michaels found the stretchy cord to make bows for some small Christmas boxes, also found some small suction cups to hand some snowflakes (we bought at Wal-mart) on our windows for Christmas decorations. 

Petsmart provided us some more additions to our one gallon aquarium.  A plant and three ghost shrimp.  So far Red Rob is ignoring his water mates, as in not eating them.  Bob had read that the ghost shrimps might be compatible with bettas and so far so good.  They were only 38 cents each so if he decides they are dinner, then not a big loss.

Here is a photo of two of them.  They are very small, about 1/2 inch long.  They are suppose to be great aquarium cleaners, eats anything that is or was alive, hopefully some of the food that Red Rob doesn’t eat.

We did a great job of shopping at Sam’s.   Restocked on many items we like to buy there, like small sweet peppers, whole almonds, cheeses, herbed turkey lunch meat and a great deal more.

Tomorrow, headed to Betty’s RV Park in Abbeville, LA, about a four hour drive.

In the special moment in time…make new friends

Ghost shrimp, never heard of them before but if they help keep the tank clean, then the big expenditure was worth it! ;c)

I think that park is out closer to I10, correct? I did 2 Katrina relief trips and wonder how things are progressing down there!

Linda said...

Yes, Diana, this park is close to I-10 and 49. I would say the Katrina recovery has gone well. We saw just one huge building that appeared to have some damage.
