Shreveport, Louisiana - Oct 31 to Nov 3, 2014

After leaving Missouri, we headed south to Shreveport.  We stayed at the Elks Lodge.  It was a really nice lodge in a pretty nice area.  At only $10/night, it was a great bargain. The lodge had their own huge swimming pool with 2 big water slides.  Unfortunately, it was too cool to swim, but I bet they are busy during the summer.  Out the back door of the lodge was a large wooden deck where you could sit outside, drink a beer, and enjoy a beautiful view of the Red River.  While in Shreveport, we enjoyed a cajun platter at the Blind Tiger.  The platter included blackened catfish, shrimp etouffee, fried crawfish, gumbo, dirty rice, voodoo shrimp, cajun corn on the cob and mini shrimp meat pies.  We also had time for a 10-mile bicycle ride from the campground to downtown Shreveport along the Clyde Fant Parkway

We spotted this big fella outside at the Bass Pro Shop Store
