Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Travel Resource

Before I continue with posts on our January trip through the South, I thought I would share the travel resource we used to find information on the places we were driving through.

I have this book on my bookshelf.


I don't remember when we got it and it is several years old.  I decided that it was a book to keep when we were downsizing last spring.  I"m glad I did.


Before the trip I tabbed the states we were going to drive through: Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama and Florida.    


Then I marked particular attractions that I thought our route may take us through.



Though it was a fairly big book, I packed it and was glad I did.


Once we returned from the trip I marked the spots we got to and the date.


I'm sure there are more recent publications of this book, but many of the attractions are still going to be there despite the age of this copy.

Our next stop after Baton Rouge was on our way to New Orleans - Oak Alley.


Look for that in my next post.

Tom - in answer to your query: 1000s! More than we can see in our lifetime.
