We continued along I-10 until we reached Sulphur LA where we travelled south about 2.5 miles on Hwy 27 to the A+ Motel & RV Park. We were assigned to Site 66 which is a nice pull through site with full hookups.

We had to stop and wait on a ferry along the trail. While we were waiting a large tanker crossed in front of us and the ferry had to wait on the ship to pass. So we ended up having to wait about 40-45 minutes to get across the water.
On Sunday, we did laundry in the morning. In the afternoon, we travelled over to Lake Charles. The first stop was the Prien Lake Park. This is a very nice park located near the I-210 bridge over Lake Charles. We got out and walked around the park for about 30 minutes on a paved walking trail.
The park had several fountains along with some covered pavilions. There were a number of families in the park on a very nice Easter afternoon. From there we travelled across I-210 to the L'Auberge du Lac Casino, which is one of several casinos here in Lake Charles. Connie had won some money at this casino when she was on a gambling trip with Rhonda Herrington and Rhonda's sisters & mom several years ago. Unfortunately she was not so lucky today.

After visiting the casino, we went back into the main part of Lake Charles to visit an old historic neighborhood along the lake. Lake Charles has a very nice park in its downtown area along the lake which we drove through on our route. Along Lakeshore Dr and Shell Beach Rd there are a number of very large houses that face the lake. Some are located on several acres of land while others are quite close together. Here are a couple of the older houses we passed along the way.
On Sunday night Connie used our new InstaPot to make one pot spaghetti with meat sauce. She used the pressure cooker function to cook the spaghetti squash, then removed the noodles and made the sauce in the same pot. It was nice being able to do the whole dish in one pot.
