Today we took the Plantation tour featuring Oak Alley and got a picture of southern life and the wealth that was built on the back of slavery.
What was so impressive was the alley of ancient oaks planted deliberately to funnel the cooler air from yhe Mississippi to the southern mansion.
In the evening we had a most memorable evening ...or mostly memorable... As the whiskey took effect on Bourbon street.
We walked this famous street and eventually settled on the Fat Cat where a very polished band layed on the rock classics.
Somehow we made our way home and I can almost remember thinking how great it would be to live every night like this.
