Monday we toured the San Francisco Plantation..another fab day-it was in Berryville out west of New Orleans..the mansion was gorgeous it was right on the Mississippi River. This property was purchased by an oil company and the house was restored (in the 70s)..we do love plantations. Rain water was gathered in those 'cisterns' and gravy fed into the mansion-therefore this mansion had running water.

I really wanted to take pictures of the inside of this mansion but it was not permissible. But pictures or no pictures it will always be vivid in my mind. The architecture of this place was amazing.
Today we motored onto Mississippi to Timberlake RV Resort right on the Ross Barnett Reservoir. Very nice resort but when I booked here they told me there was wifi at the site and there isn't. All resorts say there is wifi at the site..and it seems there never is. I do have my Canadian Telus stick with me but it is very slow. Currently we are at our daughter and son in law's home so I tagged onto their wifi to play catch up with you all. We will be here for 12 days so I may get my US verizon stick activated as I can't imagine no wifi or a slow canadian stick for 12 days. Take care all and stay safe out there!! Thanks for stopping by!!
Home is where you park it!
