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.

Natchez, Mississippi

On our road trip through the south in January we stopped for lunch on Sunday in Natchez, Mississippi.  We arrived there by way of the Natchez Trace that we picked up south of Vicksburg near Port Gibson.

The Natchez Trace is maintained by the National Park Service and is a 444 mile road from Nashville, TN to Natchez, MS.

It commemorates a trail first used by Native Americans and then by European settlers of this area.

The road is only two lanes and on Sunday it was little traveled.  There was still ice in spots and thankfully when the well pointed buck ran across in from of us it was not on an icy patch of road.  We missed him thankfully, but it was a near miss.

This was a remarkable looking church in Natchez.

We ate here at the Biscuits and Blues Restaurant and then headed on our way south to Baton Rouge, LA.

...I like the home with the pillars and the buildings with the balconies.

Nice looking town and some very wide open spaces. The church looks like it just came from England, very nice
