i am doing 2 posts tonight b/c i can't possibly skip the trees at oak alley.
oh, speaking of mileage, i DID run this morning. maybe not at 7 a.m. but maybe by about 8:15. about 2.5 i think. unless i was going wicked slow.
sorry i am jumping all around but now i am going back to nottoway.
these photos are from the guided tour. our guide was a woman who has been coming to the house since the 40s b/c her mother was friends w/the prior owner. now it is owned by a rich guy from australia who just visits. you can actually stay in the main part of the house. or if your budget is that of a public defender, you stay in the boys' wing. and are still ecstatic.
my plan for tomorrow is....
OH and i have basically changed around my entire trip plan. took more time in louisiana already than i thought i would, so doing more time in mississippi and alabama and then probably tennessee and then home. unless i can squeeze in seaside, florida on tara and vikram's recommendation. saving the east coast for next fall when i go to north carolina for amanda's wedding.
hoping that someone is so envious of my amazing travels and amazing ability to pick fantastic beautiful and relaxing places that they are right now scouring the internet for tickets to birmingham to meet me....
