Everyone needs a place to relax, be with friends and leave your daily cares on the shelf, to be addressed another day. One place that we enjoy is a campground near our home; Land-O-Pines (LOP) Family Campground. The big draw for us is the cold freshwater creek.
We have been camping at this location for years; since we were children with our families, then as teenagers dating, through marriage and raising our own children. And now today, Tricia and I sit in the creek relaxing once again with family.
Slow Down, Enjoy!
One of the reasons for this post is to encourage everyone to slow down, take a break, and enjoy the locations in your backyard. Tricia and I are guilty of not taking advantage of this location more often. It is only 9 miles away. We sometimes let life get in the way and are too busy worrying about tomorrow, instead of enjoying today.
So, put the plan into action, call some friends, schedule a day on your calendar, and visit a new fun location, or rediscover an existing location.
Some may have expected a review of Land-O-Pines Family Campground; this is not a campground review. We are not affiliated with, or representing LOP. This post is about enjoying and exploring those places around you. But, if you’re near Covington, Louisiana, it’s worth a trip to LOP, to relax and unwind.
Personal reason for this post
If you have been following us on Facebook, and reading this blog, you are aware that Tricia and I are busy selling many of our belongings, including our house, in preparation of moving into our RV. We took some time this past weekend to relax at LOP, but as we get closer to moving into our RV, we acknowledge that we need to begin addressing our mission and vision for this blog and lifestyle change. As a reminder, below is our Mission, as originally published on the Cajun Trippers page on February 7, 2017.
The Cajun Trippers’ mission is to provide travel inspiration, entertainment, and information to explorers of North America. Their vision is to encourage others to explore their world by driving roads less traveled and visiting unexplored locations in their “backyard”.
