Skywatch Friday = Tour of Deep South

Skywatch Friday = Tour of Deep South
Ten antebellum plantation homes in ten days!
Blue skies, sunshine and flowers greeted Jack and I in Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi.
Take a look below.
And come back each day this coming week to do a virtual tour of these lovely plantation homes.
We always stop at each state's welcome center.
This one is for Mississippi.
Did you know that before the civil war Mississippi was the richest state in the union?
Here is the inside the nicely decorated welcome center
with a photo of Gov. Hailey Barbour on the wall.
Here is a lifesize cutout of the most famous Mississippian,
The King, Elvis Presley!
Here is the Louisiana flag flying over the Louisiana welcome center.
The welcome center had a plantation feel in the architecture.
Flags flying over the Alabama welcome center.
At one time each of these flags represented Alabama.
Alabama believes in states rights.
Come back tomorrow to see lots of photos
of two famous antibellum plantations in Natchez, Mississippi.
But right now please visit some other Skywatch Friday memes by clicking on the Skywatch banner on the top right.
Thanks for visiting my blog!
